Two-time honorable mention All-Pac-12 pick (2012-13). Played both defensive end and defensive tackle at USC. 2013: Started all 14 games at defensive end. 2012: Started all 13 games, once at defensive end. 2011: Played in 12 games and started in two. 2010: Redshirted.



Plays with leverage and generally stays on his feet. Flashes the ability to shoot his hands inside, extend and stack. Played end and tackle.


Average foot athlete with lower-body stiffness. Exposes his frame and struggles to escape. Needs to develop counters and pass-rush moves -- hands are more active than forceful. Does not dominate single blocks. Has tweener traits -- lacks ideal bulk and anchor for DT and ideal speed and flexibility for DE. Disappears for stretches.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6-7

Bottom Line

Good-sized defensive lineman who shows in flashes, but not enough to justify leaving school early, as he looked very average against strong offensive lines. Could warrant late-round consideration as a developmental base end.
