Player Notes Pros

  • Gets off the line quickly, has good lower body power & a huge stride length

  • Works through angles with both strength & really good flexibility

  • Surprising explosiveness side to side when he's in space reading backfield meshes 

  • Good hip mobility & hip sink for a man of his size helps him work through tight angles

  • Locates hands on the chest plate nicely to control opponent as a run defender

  • Has tremendous technique, recognition, & violence at the line of scrimmage

  • Rarely loses hands initially, immediately locks out opponents with upper body strength

  • Wide base & lower body power to rip opponents off his gap & present against the run

  • Beats opponents in the trenches & is regularly first defender breaking into the backfield

  • Makes grown men look silly, grip strength & bench press strength are both elite

  • Huge tackle radius, can finish defenders & opposing offensive linemen with one arm

  • Sees the backfield easily & is regularly working to the ball carrier before anyone else

  • Reads mesh point like he's the ball carrier, feels blocks, zone flow, & double teams

  • Uses length to occupy multiple offensive linemen when they attempt to combo block him

  • Very versatile two-gapping run defender who can move all across the defensive line

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Slow getting out of his stance when fatigued, which kills his pad level & his first step

  • Difficult for a man of his size to separate & win in the narrow areas of the gaps

  • Does not show the ability to shuck & disengage blockers with consistency

  • Will turn & run against MOF plays developing behind him & get involved in tackles late

  • He is a low impact pass rusher, in a league that's currently devaluing that role
