Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 60/13/3. Sophomore totals included 43 tackles and 8 tackles for loss.
Positives: Big, athletic interior lineman with a large degree of upside potential. Moves well on his feet, flashes power and pushes blockers off the ball, collapsing the pocket. Displays the ability to stunt or twist, shows a burst of straight-line closing speed, and can be a disruptive force.
Negatives: Must develop more moves with his hands and too easily turned from his angle of attack by a single blocker. Tends to play a bit straight legged and makes himself an easy target for opponents. Looks poorly conditioned.
Analysis: Joseph possesses the size, athleticism, and strength to start at the next level in either a four-man front or potentially at nose tackle. That being the case, Joseph is very rough around the edges and needs a lot of time to develop his game. He comes with a good degree of upside and could eventually start at the next level.
