Plays with real attitude, attacking defenders, delivering a strong punch and blocking through the whistle. Resets hands multiple times in pass protection and run blocking. Mirrors defenders with lateral quickness and good knee bend. Better anchor than expected given his size. Sustains and puts his man to the ground. Fair quickness to the second level, runs to defenders and extends arms to knock them backward. Gets the angle when blocking on bootlegs and stretch plays, even when engaged. Comes off double-team to reach linebackers coming into the hole. Willing downfield blocker, hits multiple targets without missing. Cleans up piles. Reliable shotgun snapper.
His relatively slight frame means he must widen his base to be effective against strong defensive tackles. Drive-blocking is not his strong suit. Must be more aware of guards needing help instead of standing around. Does not have elite straight-line speed for the position. Needs to work on picking up twists inside.
