The Good: A massive right tackle prospect who carries his weight well for his size. Possesses long arms, and once he locks on to defenders, the battle is over. Displays a good first step out of his stance and can really get into defenders in the run game. Has a powerful lower half and does a nice job staying on defenders and driving them down the field in the run game. The Bad: Lacks the foot quickness and speed to reach the corner and will be exposed against the speed of the next level. Doesn't play with natural bend or flexibility; allows defensive ends to dip under him on the pass rush.
