Strengths

Elite athleticism and power. Ideal build with prototypical length. Tremendous technique in pass protection. Pass sets are quick and balanced. Great feet and mirror skills. Keeps a strong base and is ready to strike. Extremely quick recovery slide when rushers have a step. Very strong hands. Strikes are accurate. Uses length and natural strength to push guys around. Able to get the job done in the running game thanks to pure power. Usually does just enough to make a block. Easily transitions from target to target. Skillset suggest untapped potential as a run blocker. Has a nastiness to his game. Shows fire. Best performance came against LSU. Only started at right tackle but should be able to play both sides.

 

Weaknesses

Lacks awareness in pass protection. Needs to be better against blitzes and stunts. Should be better in space based on athletic ability. Doesn’t always get significant drive at the point of attack. Legs aren’t fully engaged when run blocking. Would like to see more consistency from game to game.
