Hood is a solid defender who plays with a high motor. He has great size and quickness, and plays with leverage. He's fast off the line, blades through the gap and quickly locates the ball carrier. He's physical at the point of attack and holds his own against a bigger opposition and double teams. He's a durable, reliable defender who demonstrates great toughness in the trenches.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis There's a chance that Hood plays DE in Pittsburgh's 3-4 defensive scheme because he's not viewed by some as being a true NT for that scheme. So it will be interesting to see where they line him up this season.
