Bequette is a strong run defender. He can set the edge well and fight off blocks. He shows up at the end of plays as a high-effort player. His size and length will be assets when tackling ball carriers at the next level. Bequette also runs well for his size, which allows him to close on ball carriers.
Bequette is not the greatest athlete for his size and often gets lost when double-teamed. While strong in the run game, he is seldom a factor in the passing game. He needs to improve his rush technique and hands to be able to get through blocks and into the pocket. Bequette rarely plays to his timed speed.
