Player Notes Pros

  • He’s got great athleticism, speed, power, size & non stop motor to make plays 

  • Love how he works to the edges of blocks & then effectively powers through gaps

  • Does well to place his hands & play with extension to control at the point of attack

  • Timing & placement of hands is outstanding, great job of finding leverage on blockers

  • Effective with his swipes, chops & crosses to clear contact, plenty of pop in his strikes

  • Keeps pads low & plays with consistently outstanding leverage to maximize his power

  • Frequently defended multiple gaps & faced double teams while holding his own

  • He’s a bully when pushing the pocket and is an absolute load moving forward

  • Has enough flexibility throughout his frame to corner & change directions

  • Overall quite slippery with the fluidity in his frame to work laterally & carry speed

  • Does good job of diminishing surface area available for blockers to get hands on him

  • Strong as hell, so if he can get more discipline in his run fits he's going to be a beast

  • Got the length, physicality & hand power to stack up blockers in one on one scenarios

  • Should excel in a 5T role or 4I alignment to hold ground in the B gap

  • Nice tackle radius & is a violent finisher when he's able to get a wrap on ball carriers

  • Scheme diverse talent who has all the tools needed to be a disruptive presence up front

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Missed all of 2018 with an Achilles injury but was outstanding in 2017 & 2019

  • Room to grow in terms of processing the run & reading blocks to effectively attack

  • Will have a technical transition at the next level after working from a four point stance

  • He can be slow to implement a counter move & as a result he'll get bogged down
