Strengths

  • Technically-sound left tackle prospect
  • Plays with good bend and a very wide base in pass protection in spite of his long legs
  • Moves feet quickly and stays in balance, rarely giving up the edge and pulling off the down block/outside blitz pick-up admirably
  • Possesses good timing and strength on his punch, while displaying good hand placement and will reset them to maintain distance
  • Recovers quickly if his misses his punch, looking to stay on his man
  • Has the foot quickness to get correct angles and keep moving to sustain the block
  • Has excellent athleticism and foot speed, shown the ability to mirror and stay in front of many talented pass rushers over his three years starting.

Weaknesses

  • Does not possess elite upper or lower-body strength
  • Only adequate as a drive-blocker and can be pushed back by better defensive ends and shed in the run game
  • Does not often execute the reach block
  • Often overextends his punch and is vulnerable to a rip move outside or spin inside
