Strengths: Powerful frame, good size, length, and bulk – Explosive first step, very quick off the snap – Great work rate on the field, always pursuing and fighting – Uses his hands incredibly well – Has the strength and initial quickness to easily overwhelm a center or guard – Incredible potential – Can dominate a game.

Weaknesses: Might only be a 1-gap DT/Nose – Isn’t a dynamic pass-rusher, but will flush the QB by pushing the pocket – Needs to shed blockers better after an initial loss – Average against double teams, will need to improve this at the next level.
