Biography: Part-time starter the past three seasons, totaling 29 tackles and 5.5 tackles for loss as a senior. Junior numbers included 17/4.5/2.
Positives: Nice-sized defensive tackle yet to take his game to the next level. Displays solid size in the middle of the field, natural strength and power in his lower body. Effectively plays with leverage, tough to move off the line, and fluid changing direction. Shows a burst of speed and above-average movement skills.
Negatives: All too often gets tall and makes himself an easy target to be blocked. Rarely uses his hands to protect himself or get off blocks. Must improve his playing balance.
Analysis: Joseph has shown flashes of skill in the past two seasons, yet he really does not play with any consistency. He must improve his overall fundamentals, play at a high level, and live up to expectations. He has all the skills necessary to make it as a defensive lineman at the next level.
