Summary

Winn is a highly versatile defensive lineman, who can find a home as a 3 tech in a 43 or a 5 tech in a 34. He appears to be much better suited for a system in which he is only a one gap player. Winn appears to be more of a rotational piece at this point, unless he can add some more functional strength to anchor versus blockers.

Strengths

Winn has an athletic build for a defensive tackle. He consistently fires off the ball quickly with an explosive first step. Winn comes off the ball low, and maintains his pad level and balance through contact. He uses his hands well and against smaller lineman can create a push at the point of attack. Winn also shows some deft at slipping through blocks or fighting his way through contact. He also displays a high motor, good ball awareness, and is a reliable tackler.

Weaknesses

Winn’s initial hand placement is inconsistent, and when this is combined with his short arms, he gives up leverage. Too often he will be trying to shoot a gap and will be overwhelmed if he’s beaten to the spot. Winn also has trouble disengaging if he doesn’t gain ground on his first step.
