Strengths 

Mesidor can be agile and explosive at times when the ball is snapped. He plays with strength and it can be showcased with how he tackles. He does a solid job finishing plays and can provide pressure to the QB. Mesidor has decent pass rushing moves. Does a great job with how he tackles defenders and he can hit with power. Does a great job shooting at gaps and limiting the running backs options. He plays with a lot of toughness and can be a disruptive player on the defensive line. The position versatility is clear as he has played as a DE/EDGE as well as at defensive tackle.

Weaknessess

Mesidor is not the most flexible player and does not have the greatest balance. He needs to be more consistent with his play strength. Akheem can be very sloppy with the utilization of his hands. Speaking of sloppiness, his footwork is not great and it is shown with his first steps as they are not quick. He does not do a great job with stacking and shedding. Durability is an issue as he had foot issues during the 2022 Season.
