Positives: Tall, strong tackle with potential as a nose tackle at the next level despite playing three-technique in college. Can be explosive off the snap, getting a nice push when his coming low from his stance, and has the balance to spin off blocks and the mobility to move laterally in short areas. Good hustle to the ball, competes every snap when rested. His height and length make it difficult for quarterbacks to throw over him.

Negatives: Plays too tall at times, allowing lineman to get their hands into his jersey to stand him up. Only adequate finding the ball in the backfield. A bit heavy-footed, lacks great closing speed to make plays outside the box. Stamina may be an issue when going up against stronger lineman at the next level.
