Quick to defeat a block and make the tackle. Rare balance and avoids going to the ground even when caught by surprise. Very powerful bull rush. Impressive bend as a rusher. Speed/athleticism allows him to stick with mobile quarterbacks. Athletic and aware dropping in coverage. Has lined up over the center in passing situations. Puts hands up for deflections if he doesn’t get home as a rusher.
