Pros: Carries tremendous power and pop from a standstill and can make a violent impact on contact. Derives most of his power from his legs and hips. Rolls them into the defender with a wide base. Feet are active and light. Will reach his spot easily and still deliver the initial punch.

Exposes his chest when moving laterally. Pro Comparison: Trent Williams / WAS
