He has experience playing as both a LG and C, which highlights his mental processing and football intelligence. He uses his size and athletic ability to generate good play strength, and combines that play strength with solid technique. His feet and hands are in the proper placement more often than not, which allows for him to play with good leverage. He shows a good ability as a puller, both in his technique and execution. He consistently picks up blitzing linebackers in pass pro, and is able to handle most one on one situations. Expect Hinkle to be a name to watch next year.
