Strengths: Ideal height, length and bulk for DL – Displayed a thick, yet lean and defined upper body at the combine – Has the physical tools to be a two-gap 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DT – Lower body strength allows his to anchor against double teams – Extremely powerful bull-rush, over powers blockers, when he stays low – Sheds blocks effectively, uses hands very well – Can penetrate when called upon – Decent lateral quickness – Gets a huge push when he stays low – Locates the ball in the backfield- Diagnoses plays quickly and is not fooled by misdirection – Solid first step, very good on slanting and twisting due to quickness – Draws a lot of double teams and displayed ability to split them – Flat out dominated some games as a senior and had a terrific all around season – Team Captain.
Weaknesses: Not a great array of rush moves, swim and bull is all he has needed – Motor needs to be more consistent – Biggest problem with still is pad level, gets vertical at times, allowing the defender to win pad level and hand battles – Over aggressive at times – Had two major leg injuries in college, which really hampered his college career, so the injury risk is there
