Projection: Versatile OL who could play G or T, will start early and be solid but could develop into something more by fixing some technical run block issues. Draft Projection: Early Round 3 ~

Ravens Fit: He could start at RT as well as kicking inside. His footwork is very good and he knows how he wins with his hands in pass pro. He’s tough, his size/power is more suited to a heavier Gap system like the Ravens run. The problem, is he has a significant positioning deficiency as a run blocker. The Ravens will think they can fix it more than heavier Zone teams, as his Gap blocking deficiency is more about technique than his Zone issues which are more about athleticism. If they do, he could battle for the RT spot or win the LG battle, I don’t think he can play Center – I think his left hand is too dominant for the pivot.

Overall Fit 4/5

Pass Protection

Good initial quickness out of his stance and has good set quickness to get to his mark. He’s a big man and he maximizes his force by keeping contact with the ground and moving very efficiently. He doesn’t have great athleticism when he has to pick his feet up and move in space but when sliding to mirror an edge rusher on vertical sets, he’s very comfortable. He maintains the half-man relationship against all rushers and is a dancing bear in his pass protection. When he gets to his set point, he builds his house well. His go-to move with his hands is his outside strike – this is because his left hand, appears to be his dominant hand though. His outside strike is well placed and powerful but most of all, well timed. He is patient with his hands and can therefore neutralize most edge-rushers with a good plan. His inside hand is often just used to steer but it will also be well-placed when he uses a two handed strike, where his patience really helps him. This all applies to his 45 sets too but in jump sets he can over-extend himself, he is on the whole, better going backwards.

A good processor, he spots stunts and counters coming early. This allows him to deploy either his excellent outside strike on DL looping outside, or power step with lateral explosion, quickness to redirect to inside moves. His anchor is good when facing up to lighter edge rushers but when heavy rushers with better play strength can keep his inside hand off them, they can walk him back into the QB and he can struggle to reset and re-anchor. This is the only time he doesn’t play with leverage in pass protection as he is a natural bender.

Run Blocking

His foot speed is an area of his game that is lacking and it starts to show up on Zone and Space blocks in the run game. In Outside Zone, his slide step is a little off when he’s play side as it looks more like a back-side bucket step, consequently he increases the distance he has to make to position on the block. On the backside – he struggles to reach most guys, even 3 techniques when given help. When out in space, it all gets a bit messy and he struggles to position on more athletic types, this is due to his marginal foot speed but also his inability to react in space. When a second level defender is stationary, he can unload with a devastating fit and finish but it’s rare to get situations like this where he doesn’t have to seek and destroy.

On Gap blocks the positioning deficiency shows up again but this time it’s because he moves his inside foot first and then his outside foot slightly backwards. This lack of an effective drive and attack step on Base blocks and technical malpractice in positioning on other blocks leads to him getting over-extended and never really consistently getting to the fit stage of the block. When he does, he can miss the strike zone with his hands and doesn’t keep moving his feet on contact to finish. He has nasty and competitiveness to him.

Dancing bear with efficient feet and a good outside strike, natural bender and pass protector. Could play RT or G but would need to solve issues with positioning in the run game
