Scouting Report
Brings ideal overall size for a starting NFL offensive tackle. Does a fantastic job run-blocking, using his big frame and hands impressively to get a nice punch off the snap. Will maul out to the second level, and seal off defenders top open holes. Fairly nimble in a small space to stay with bull-rushers. Has a high motor and is a locker room asset. Not an ideal fit for the left side, as he struggles with talented edge rushers. A bit stiff and upright in his stance, not very fluid adjusting to lateral shifts, and doesn't have good speed in open space to recover when pass-rushers get the edge.
Long Range Potential: Feisty, well-sized run blocker with starter tools, best on the right side.
