  • Ideal size and strength

  • High football IQ

  • Excellent feet and lateral movement

  • Explosive out of his stance - excellent jab step

  • Consistently keeps his pad level low

  • Uses his length effectively to keep defenders off his frame

  • Great hips - know how to use them to seal opposing linemen

  • Exceptional mobility for his size - overall great athlete

  • Technically sound hand placement

  • Able to use size and movement to seal of the edge effectively

  • Excellent at staying balanced in his 'sit' - avoids leaning forward

  • Able to reach the second level effectively

  • Plays with an aggressive tenor - physically imposing

  • Great awareness of stunts

On run blocking sequences, Sewell has somewhat of a tendency of getting lost in his movement; as a result, he sometimes fails to locate his man or loses balance and falls over. Overall as a run blocker, Sewell has some fine tuning to do if he wants to become effective in this domain at the next level.
