Overview

Positives … Has a thick upper body with wide hips and large bubble, thick calves, some softness in the mid-section and room for additional growth … Tenacious blocker with good upper body power to shock and jolt the defender coming off the snap … When working near the line, he keeps his base better when taking on stunts and twists … Has enough foot speed to get into the defender at the line of scrimmage and can land and explode into his man when operating in closed quarters … Plays with the toughness and nastiness you like to see from your center in order to finish blocks … Has good slide agility and is functional anchoring in pass protection … More of an upper body mauler who at times, can roll over one- techniques and nose guards, as he possesses the ability to keep his shoulders square and stay on blocks … In pass protection, he shows good hand quickness and will generate good hand extension in double team action … Sinks his hips enough to recover vs. double moves … .Best when working in closed quarters, as he gets better leverage there than when working in space.

Negatives … Strong upper body blocker, but struggles to maintain his balance on the move … Needs to improve his timed speed, as he fails to get out front on sweeps and screens as you would like from your center … When working up field, he struggles in space, as he fails to reach the three-tech and sometimes will duck his head upon contact … Lacks good knee bend (when he gets high in his stance, he can be defeated by a strong club move) … his short hand punch needs to be improved if he is to consistently lock out his man at the line … Will need to add some more bulk to his frame to play at the next level, but must also improve his acceleration … .Struggles to sustain on the scope and lacks good redirection skills to be effective on traps and pulls.
