Scouting Report from NationalFootballPost.com
A tall, heavy legged tackle who struggles to really sit into his stance and keep his base under him. Uncoils at the waist off the ball in the run game and fails to gain leverage for himself on contact. Despite his size routinely can be overwhelmed at the point. Lacks ideal initial quickness off the snap as well. Doesn’t have the initial burst to reach speed off his frame and gives up a lot of penetration both vs. the run and pass game because of it.

Does a better job in pass protection because of his size and length. However, has a tendency to trouble over into contact and because of his weight gets caught on his toes causing him to lose balance. Doesn’t stay real compact on his punch and isn’t a guy who can mirror laterally through any type of change of direction move. Holds up decently vs. the bull rush, but again it’s more because of his size. Struggles with pad level and will be bullied at the point in the NFL.

Impression: Has played both right tackle and guard. Body type says right tackle to me in the NFL. However, isn’t real athletic in space, struggles with balance and isn’t ever going to be able to gain leverage inside. Size free agent only.
