Positives
Stout, compact frame. Strong punch. Powerful lower half. Great burst off the line. Makes it to the second [and on occasion third] level easily. Feet appear light – moves well in space on pulls and traps. Mean streak – looks to hit LBs/put down linemen.  Good anchor on passing plays – shows he can re-anchor against bigger/stronger NTs.  2-Time SEC Academic Honor Role.

Negatives
He will be pushed back on initial bull rushes/stunts by bigger DL – but shows he can re-anchor nicely. Will mostly appeal to zone blocking teams but has shown he is sound/strong enough to power block. Length may be an issues – arms look average in length.

Overall
After a strong 1st year, the 2-Time SEC Academic Honor Role athlete is an athletic OG that needs to get stronger and learn to anchor consistently against bigger NTs. A mean blocker, looking to take people out – makes it to the second easily. Shows explosion off the snap and is quick to engage and take out the defender. Best fit is a zone blocking scheme but his game can translate to a power scheme.
Overall:  7.49
Proj. RD: 1st
