Hooks can slide up and down the defensive line and fill in where he best helps the team.
He appears to be better suited for the interior defensive line, but he shows a nice burst coming off of the edge when lining up on the end.
Hooks has a great motor and fights through the trash to make a play often coming from the backside.
Hooks does a nice job using his hands to prevent offensive lineman from getting inside. He uses good pad level and is able to get into gaps and blows things up before they really get started.
