Strengths

  • Big-bodied nose tackle prospect who commands double teams
  • Anchors against the run
  • Ideal size for a nose - 350 pounds and carries the weight well
  • Good strength and power at the point of attack
  • Athletic - Moves well for his size but still plays best in a phone booth
  • Dominant performer in the trenches at the Senior Bowl
  

Weaknesses

  • Weight - always a concern for 350 pounders
  • Endurance - wears down at times
  • Minimal impact as a pass rusher
  • Slow off the ball
  • Limited lateral agility
  • Plays upright at times causing him to lose the leverage battle
  • Raw - Has upside as a developmental nose tackle but may not be ready to play right away.
  • Had some off-field issues at Penn State that resulted in him being dismissed from the team prior to transferring to Baylor
