Works his legs well through contact and does a nice job initially getting his hands under defenders and gaining inside leverage. However, doesn’t keep his base down through contact, fails to generate a real snap through his hips and struggles to get much movement as an in-line guy. Showcases above-average range on the move and can get out and around on slide down/reach blocks. Looks comfortable at the second level as well and can drop his pad level and chop down defenders in space. Now, isn’t overly balanced when asked to break down, but works hard to get a piece of his man.
Exhibits a good first step out of his stance in pass protection and does a nice job extending his long arms and dictating to blocks on contact. Has the ability to stick to defenders through the play and can be surprisingly heavy handed at times. Showcases good lateral ability and balance when asked to mirror. Is a natural athlete who can redirect cleanly and looks balanced sliding his feet in space. However, isn’t the most natural of knee benders and will struggle to really sit into his stance. Gets high and routinely overextends/bends at the waist in order to hold up vs. any kind of bull rush, but for the most part is able to get away with it because of his footwork and ability to quickly change directions, which is something he won’t be able to do in the NFL.
Impression: Has experience at both guard and tackle, but looks more like a guard to me. Works really hard inside in the run game and has the type of athleticism to mirror in pass protection. Needs to learn to sit into his stance and play a little lower in pass pro, but could serve as a utility guy along the offensive line and fight for playing time as a guard in more of a zone-scheme at some point."
Negatives: Gets too upright in pass protection and moved off the LOS... Can be beat by good outside speed... Will lean and lunge to make contact on the outside edge... Can be pushed back by a strong bull rusher... Tends to rise up too high as he move through the second level... Looks a little awkward on the move... Lacks the flexibility and body control to cleanly fit on linebackers at the second level... Will overextend and lunge into some blocks on the move... Lacks the lateral range and arm length to play Left Tackle in the NFL."
