SCOUTING REPORT

A raw prospect with tremendous upside who brings great size, length and strength. He was playing basketball for Bobby Hurley in Jersey City, NJ before converting over to football during his junior season of high school but he had very limited film or playing or experience due to a MCL injury. He was offered a scholarship to Syracuse and bided his time patiently before starting the past two seasons at right tackle for the Orangemen, while logging over 1,000 snaps during his senior campaign. Silent and violent type; he displayed his toughness suffering a broken hand on the first day of East-West Shrine Game practice but played the remainder of the week in a cast; he also appeared to play through a leg injury during the Pitt game (2017). Very quiet demeanor and rarely gets riled up—he did get feisty with NC State defensive end Bradley Chubb and did a solid job containing him. The ultimate team player who draws high praise from coaches and teammates—always the first lineman to go over and pick his quarterback up off the ground. Possesses a wide frame, along with nice waist/knee bend, which will be appealing to coach up as this player lacks experience. He excels in pass protection but will need to continue to hone his craft in the run blocking department, in addition to sharpening his footwork. He has come a long way in improving his explosion off the ball since the end of the season and does a much better job opening up his hips, after spending three months training with OL guru Donny Klein at Parabolic Performance in New Jersey leading up to the draft. His weight has fluctuated between 302 and 328, he weighed in at 308 on pro day. His 20 bench press reps may appear low at first glance but he was unable to bench for two months leading up to his pro day due to the broken hand, plus he has extremely long arms (81″ wingspan), so it’s actually an impressive total. Grew up in a rough neighborhood, only missed three days of high school; his father was a cop in Newark, NJ for 25 years. His upside presents long-term potential as he continues to develop and his traits compare similar to that of Caleb Benenoch (Bucs).
