The Good: A massive interior lineman with the ability to swallow defenders at the point of attack. Displays a quick first step off the snap and showcases good lower body strength and initial pop on contact. Gets consistent movement in the run game. Has long arms and delivers a smooth, jarring punch in pass protection. Does a nice job keeping defensive tackles off his body. The Bad: Possesses only average athleticism and looks a bit heavy-legged when asked to get out to the second level. Isn't the most fluid in space and lacks the balance to slide if he can't get his hands on interior linemen.
Positives: Has long arms, huge hands and a naturally thick frame. Plays physically and can drive defenders off the line and reestablish the line of scrimmage. Runs his legs on contact and plays with a violent disposition - seeks to finish blocks and does. Strong in-line. Hits with force in his hands and can shock defenders with his punch. Possesses explosive power and shows the ability to dominate when he wants to. Good strength to anchor. Has lined up at tackle and has enough skill to handle playing on the edge in a pinch. Negatives: Average lateral slide and agility - will give up the edge and cannot recover. Struggles to work in space and easily connect with linebackers. Does not show awareness to the blitz and will let blitzers come through cleanly. Lacks discipline and does not like to work. Effort is inconsistent. Immature. Durability could be an issue. Summary: A big, strong roadgrader who showed up at the Combine in better shape than scouts anticipated, but he must show that he will continue to work after a big payday. Is so massive that he can win matchups with his size, but could be challenged by quickness and zone pressure. Should be able to contribute readily. Grade: Second-to-third-round talent.
