Scouting Report: Weaknesses

  1. Inferior to faster and more agile defenders 
  2. sometimes gets held hostage by his own height
  3. moving into the backfield, has difficulty situational awareness

Scouting Report: Summary

A dimensional, physically strong lineman with plenty of game experience. Useful in the outfield game, effective on pass protection, did not miss a single sack last season. Acts calmly, not inclined to take risks. He should improve his hand technique for further progress, maybe lose some weight to become more agile. Can make an immediate impact in the NFL on a team that emphasizes the takeaway game through the center zone.
