Pos: 
Explosive, undersized first-step lineman. Plays with consistent knee bend and leverage, keeps his feet moving and works his hands throughout the action. Fires off the snap with a great first step, gets a lot of momentum going up the field and shows great quickness. Agile, resilient and penetrates gaps.
Neg: 
Easily taken from the action by a single blocker or consistently outpositioned from the play. Lack of height is a liability, especially against the run.
Analysis: 
Givens is a three-technique tackle who must beat opponents from the snap of the ball with his quickness. His intensity and ability to make plays in any direction are appealing.
