Third-year sophomore entry, two-year starter, Lithonia, GA. The former top tier five-star recruit and accomplished high school basketball player, technically started just 19 games over his career but was a part of a rotation in 2021 that gave him a lot of snaps. Once he took over the full-time job protecting the blindside of quarterback Stetson Bennett, he never looked back. An elite athlete with the kind of quick trigger and snap out of his stance that looks like he’s in fast forward mode. Light on his feet with easy and natural ability to redirect. Stays square to his man with rapid-fire footwork and active hands. Still has some rawness to his game that likely stems from less-than-ideal experience. Needs a bit more mass and strength to improve the anchor, but that can come in time. An ideal fit for a zone blocking scheme and could even pave a road for himself inside at guard if tackle does not work out. Plays with a comfortable level of explosive suddenness. Beats his man to the point on a repeated basis. Tremendous torque stemming from thick hips and thighs. A weapon in the running game as a lead blocker. Converts his speed to power in a heartbeat. Fights hard post-initial engagement and plays with constant energy. Late and wide with his hands, does not maximize his reach. Gets a little out of control immediately post-snap. Forces himself into too much catchup mode. Needs to increase core strength to avoid losing to powerful bull rushers. Would like to see more knee bend, will get too top heavy at times and vulnerable to a secondary rush move. Has all of the traits to start in the NFL, but his lack of experience may throw caution to the wind for some teams and depending on who gets him, there may be a better fit inside.
OSR:3/37. 1st/2nd round.
