Gets buckled over at the waist when extending into contact and despite his natural compact/balance footwork initially, routinely is forced to lunge into contact and push speed rushers past the play.
Showcases decent lateral quickness in tight areas. However, when asked to reach the edge and adjust off the speed rush, he gets upright and is stiffness showcasing his inability to cleanly re-direct. Is compact with his punch and uses his length well, however isn't real heavy handed and has a tough time staying engaged.
Showcases decent initial quickness when asked to step and seal in the run game. Plays mostly from a two point stance, isn't a guy who gains much leverage or has the lower body strength to move defenders off the football.
At best he possesses average lateral range to stick through contact and looks top heavy on the move. He struggles to breakdown in space and has a tendency to over run plays when trying to reach the second level.
Impression: Flexibility, balance and range are all below average and he lacks the skill set needed to make an NFL roster."
Accordingly, he needs to get stronger, particularly in his upper body (average punch strength), and improve his physicality and finishing.
Quick out of his stance and makes solid initial contact.
Good leverage and knee bend to shuffle, slide and mirror, though he is not as athletic as you would expect given his background.
His movement skills play better in space than in tight quarters, as he shows average suddenness to adjust/redirect vs. inside counters.
Character player with smarts and work ethic warranting draftable consideration as a versatile, developmental lineman."
