Positives: Good initial quickness and flexibility. Fairly athletic and light on his feet. Plays with passion and tenacity. Comes off the ball well and generates movement at times. Understands blocking angles. Effective trapping and pulling around the corner. Very effective cut blocker in space. Gets to the next level and seals off nicely. Moves his feet well, can anchor on pass protection and uses his hands well. Has been consistent and durable. Smart, mature, grounded person. Has played some center.

Negatives: Average length and leverage. Has size and bulk limitations against physically superior opponents. Will not dominate at the point of attack at the next level.

Summary: Above average prospect who will fit best for teams that value athleticism and more zone-blocking concepts.
