Really small overager. I would not say in shadows of those great players, but he makes the most of his oppurtunities against 2nd pair opposition. I'm sure he's a hard worker, but he'd have to be exceptional at it to survive in the Pro game.

Btw, here's some talk from the prospect board about drafting enforcers:
