Pros–Commands a double team on a lot of plays…very wide body with prototype size for nose tackle…can probably play in 3 or 4 man front… gets solid push off the snap…decent quickness for a man of his girth…good strength in upper/lower body and will only get better as time progresses

Cons–Doesn’t always take the right angle when he breaks through the line…not an elite athlete like a Haloti Ngata… more of a gap-clogger than a playmaker at the DT position…does not have big time production…There are questions about his desire to bring great intensity week in and week out

Player comparison–Jamal Williams

Round: 2
