defending the run. Plays low with
leverage, strong in his lower body and drives opponents off the line.

Rarely off his feet and looks to get involved in the action.
Stiff upper body, lacks the fluid or quick
change of direction and is only effective in a straight line.
Gets locked up with opposing lineman and must learn to use his hands
Must improve his abilities to rush the passer
but a two- gap
lineman who can be used on the nose.
