Hutchinson has a tendency to play too high out of his stance. When he keeps his pad level high, he is more likely to lose one-on-one battles. He is most effective when pass rushing outside in 7-technique; when pass rushing inside, he is not as effective and can be neutralized. His long, lean frame may work to his disadvantage against bigger offensive linemen, such as Georgia's Jamaree Sayler. For him to win these types of battles, he may need to add strength.
