|Critical Factors [1-9 Scale]|
|BIG PLAY ABILITY||6|
Needs to get stronger and add mass. Not a natural bender. Misses cut blocks – on the floor more often due to non-contact. Doesn’t finish aggressively. Doesn’t show mean streak. Waits for defender to get into frame/come to him before initiating contact. Struggles to anchor against power moves.

Current 2 year starter [at both RT and LT]. Has the size – needs to get bigger and stronger. Shows a good job of mirroring and snuffing speed moves – he will struggle against bigger and powerful defenders. Shows struggles to finish and needs to find a mean streak. Whiffs on many cut blocks. Plays well in space and on the move – hits the second level quickly – keeps eyes moving. Currently projected to go in the 2nd or 3rd round – knee bend and technique will need to be worked out throughout the year.
