Works hard one-on-one as a pass rusher. Doesn't do a great job extending his arms into contact, but has some power/violence in his hands when trying to disengage. Isn't real shifty or sudden when looking to slip blocks, but can fight his way off blocks inside at the Conference USA level, but won't be able to get away with it in the pros.
Displays above-average anchor strength vs. the run game. Does a better job extending his arms and locking out at the point of attack and really does have a strong lower body because he has the ability to hold the point despite his high pad level and lack of leverage. However, he loses too much balance because of his high pad level and can be easily sealed from the football or tossed to the ground through the play as he ends up on the turf far too often in the run game.
Impression: A tough, naturally strong kid who does some things well on his natural athletic ability. But has a long way to go from a technique and leverage standpoint and will need to learn on the job as a free agent only."
