I expect you would need to try to hide him in coverage but he's got good size and moves well. We've all seen Johnny boy's love article about his splits. Having a guy like this backing the line should give running game fits because he's got the speed to shut down a side. Or coming off the edge on blitzes he could be a terror, maybe even putting a hand down on 3rd downs like he did in college. I think he's got the mindset and smarts to learn enough coverage to not be a liability eventually
