Strengths:

  • An absolute freak of an athlete (probably the most athletic interior lineman I’ve ever seen) with superstar potential.
  • Beats guys with leverage, speed and strength that makes him unstoppable.
  • Never gives up on a play and has a non-stop motor where he never seems to get tired. Allows him to be able to make plays that seem impossible.

Weaknesses:

  • Often gets away with beating guys with pure strength and speed and disregards technique. He may be in for a shock when things aren’t as easy in the NFL.
  • He is a little small to be lining up against the interior offensive lineman in the NFL.
  • Will need to take some time to learn some more pass rush moves to add to his repertoire.
