Darnell is a very good offensive lineman that has a great combination of strength and technical skills. He is a huge lineman that is the prototype offensive guard. Physical with his hands and really uses them as a weapon both in the run and pass game. Comes off the football with power and leverage; low pads and a flat back. Completely dominates defensive linemen that try to play base technique; knocks them off the ball to the second level. Absolutely mauls defenders when down blocking and double teaming. Like a road grader, destroys the opponent when combination blocking. This is a good athlete, who has the flexibility to bend, slide his feet and shows good balance. Does show foot quickness when pulling and leading upfield fights his way through the garbage to get to linebacker level. Displays the ability to slide to the deep set point he is a workhorse that gets the job done. A solid pass protector that stops the pass rusher dead in his tracks making him restart. Very consistent at the quick set up and drop back protection. Displays excellent patience on the deep set and waits for the rusher to come to him before delivering the blow; doesn't get overextended. Impossible to power rush due to size and strength. Darnell is a very good offensive lineman that can be a major player at the guard position where he can have a little protection on both sides. He is strong and very fundamentally sound along with being an exceptional run blocker at the point of attack.
