Player Summary:

5SR. Subpar height/average weight combo. Great arm length and average hand size. Is primarily deployed at LG in TNUN’s gap scheme. Average athletic tester. He showcases good instincts, play strength, and balance. Not speedy for an OG. He shows average speed, explosiveness, twitch, and agility. Not a speedy or quick guard. He is susceptible to lapses in focus with average competitiveness and toughness. Positionally, he has great versatility and has a history of starts at all three IOL positions. He also shows great leverage with his lower height. It is a necessity for him to compensate for his height with great leverage. He showcases great power from snap to snap. He displays average flexibility which puts him in some compromised positions. That flexibility leaves his base to flail against the bendy and quick defenders. In the passing game, he is a solid asset. Versus power rushers, he is great. His good latch and strength lead to positive reps against the stronger bull rusher types. He showcases a good punch against the power guys. Against speed rush, he shows average quality. His flexibility, initial quickness, and slow hands lead to some struggles, and sometimes allowing them to blow by him. His quality of hand usage gives him average counter ability. His recovery ability is average along with his speed. In the run game, he is average. He shows good power and sustain. He is average as a puller and finisher. His below-average foot speed holds him back from being a better puller and finisher. He mostly struggles at the second level. He does show good instincts. His toughness and competitiveness keep him in games. Overall, a solid and versatile IOL.

Scheme Fit:

LG in a gap scheme.

Power Statement:

A powerful and versatile OG that has struggles against speed.
