Positives: Good length and long arms... Adequate pass protector... Solid position blocker... Good hand placement... Seals off the action well... Good run blocker... Good burst off the ball... Good arm extension... Can get his hands on defender quickly and control him... Physical, tough, possesses a mean streak... Good forceful hand punch... Good strength at POA... Very solid drive blocker... Plays with reasonably good power... Can get movement in the running game... Can pull and trap block reasonably well... Does a nice job getting to the second level... Does a solid job breaking down in space... Solid flexibility and body control... Stays with his blocks, good finisher... Competitive... Best in confined space... Reminds me a little of former 49er Scott Gragg.
