Scouting Report
Very powerful run blocker who will latch on to defenders and chase them into the ground. Difficult for pass rushers to get around due to his reach. Strong.

Immediate Projection
He will likely enter fall camp and be in the two deep rather soon. They will throw everything at him and see how he holds up. If he does as they expect, he could end up winning a starting tackle job.
