Plays the majority of his snaps from a two-point stance and displays solid bend when asked to sit into his stance and initially can keep his base under him. However, he gets overextended with his footwork toward the edge, pops upright and has a tendency to play straight-legged when asked to anchor.
He lacks ideal power through his lower half and routinely gets caught overextending into contact. He doesn't generate any pop on his punch and can be overwhelmed initially vs. the bull rush. Needs to do a better job being more compact with his hands to shoot them inside the chest plate of blockers.
However, he is a plus athlete with good short area quickness and impressive recovery ability. He fails to stick to blocks through the play, but has the shuffle and slide quickness to reach defensive ends once they gain a step and push them past the play.
Again, he never sticks to blocks for long but works hard to give his quarterback all the time he needs. Can mirror in space with some consistency, but struggles to mirror through contact and can be overwhelmed and disengaged from because of high pad level and overextended footwork.
Isn't a guy who can gain leverage in the run game at this stage. Looks comfortable sitting into a three-point stance, but he stands upright off the snap and struggles to breakdown into contact. Gets caught lunging into defenders too often, struggles with his balance and can easily be slipped at the line.
Does a better job stepping and sealing from a two-point stance, keeping his balance, is quick to get in between the ball and his man, but doesn't stick through contact.
Impression: He's been a productive lineman who can bend and has natural athletic ability when asked to mirror. He needs to get stronger in his lower half and learn to play a bit more compact but he, looks like a late round/free agent guy who, with some time, could end up making a roster spot inside as a guard in more of a zone scheme."
Can pull and work his way through traffic.
Could do a better job using his hands and finishing.
Can be overpowered and struggle to handle inside counters (see Nebraska vs. Jared Crick).
Would be best suited in a zone-blocking scheme where he could seal and wall-off defenders."
When healthy has long arms and moves feet well in pass protection; can change direction as well as get to the corner and cut off the edge; still more of a finesse blocker who is not going to bury anybody in the run game, although he can get to the second level;
Has decent functional strength; durability will be an issue whenever he enters the draft as he also missed spring practice this year after undergoing off-season shoulder surgery."
