Player Notes Pros

  • Shows an incredible amount of agility, & burst to release & drive out of his stance

  • Very fluid athlete, quite springy for a bigger, dense strong side defensive end 

  • Appreciate his drive to get out of the blocks without any rock or wasted momentum

  • Does well to get stacked with inside fit & utilize his separation skills to stack blocks

  • Has shown a nice cross chop that packs a potent punch & has proved effective

  • Pad level to stay anchored & squat beneath blockers in tight alignment when condensed

  • Currently at his best as a strong-side defensive end to stack up runs & hold the POA

  • Like his ability to set the edge firm & lock out to maintain control of the perimeter

  • Tough one to uproot or push off his spot, there's good second effort plays on his tape

  • Appreciate upper body power to yank tackles off their sets if they lean into him

  • He's what you'll want from an end man to hold his ground & turn runs back inside

  • Like his finishes, he's got a very violent wrap up to pull down ball carriers

  • Consistent with first contact counters, stuns & also shedding after hands get extended. 

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Not much variety to his game, he's even more challenged by forcing clean counters

  • Too quick to defer back to power rushes & collapse but not threaten the pocket

  • Lateral mobility isn't great to flip hips & get outside if tested with speed to the outside

  • Doesn't have the same juice or burst when you ask him to play side to side

  • Ability to duck across face in tight is hindered by lack of consistency with his hands

  • Average mobility in space to hit far reaching landmarks his overall juice is lacking

  • Wouldn't charge him with dropping into shallow zones or looking to buzz the flats
