Pro Football Focus is very high on him, but they said he needs to work on some fundamentals. This is a question for people who watch more gametape than I do.
Is this the kind of stuff he can improve in training camp or should we expect quite a few rookie mistakes? He is coming from a lower tier program. So the talent increase that he is facing is much larger than players from top programs. I know he did well at the Senior Bowl, but that is one game.
I expect them to have Damon Harrison go up against him in one on one drills alot and move Harrison over to face him more in scrimmages to school him as well.
1. He does not get low very often. This is likely do to be sloppy due to facing inferior talent. He will need to get low in the NFL. Even though this sounds easy, I am sure its harder than people think while playing against elite talent. NFL players are much bigger and stronger than what he faced at UTEP.
2. He has issues with not getting his hands out and gets beat. This one I think is trickier because NFL players are much faster, so you have to be in position quicker.
3. I saw references to him getting confused on blitz packages on pass plays. This is DJ Flukers achilles heal. He is a great straight ahead run blocker, but gets easily confused during stunts. I would expect teams to stunt him alot to test him.
Any other fundamentals he needs to work on?
