Pros: Naturally large man with a powerful upper and lower body. Good initial quickness off the snap to gain an advantage as a run blocker. Good hand placement and upper body strength to pop the defender. Plays with leverage. Can get under the pads of the defender and drive him off the line of scrimmage. Has the phone booth quickness to get to the second level and shows at least adequate lateral quickness to block in space. Uses his big frame to shield defenders from the ball as a receiver. At least marginal hands for the reception. Gets low and can run through arm-tackles to gain positive yardage after the reception.
Cons: Lacks the straight-line speed to be more than a short-range target in the passing game. Lumbers off the snap, and lacks the quick feet to consistently gain separation as a route-runner. Has to gather himself and too often rounds off his routes. Lacks the flexibility to consistently make receptions outside of his frame. Requires a Combine check on his shoulder; missed the entire 2006 season after fracturing his right shoulder blade in August 2006.
