Analysis

Strengths

Looks the part with NFL stature, length and musculature. Is athletic and flexible and has rare leaping ability for his size. Quick off the snap. Flashes the ability to gain extension and play off blocks. Gives effort in pursuit and ranges to make tackles. Good closing speed. Snares ball carriers. Averaged a sack per game in college. Has experience in a 4-3 and 3-4. Dedicated, hardworking and coachable two-time captain. Mentally tough guy who has beaten the odds and persevered to get to this point. Has moldable tools and upside.

Weaknesses

Needs to get functionally stronger. Still learning to convert speed to power and does not physically dominate marginal competition. Green eyes and instincts to locate and diagnose. Plays too tall and needs to learn how to grow roots defending the run. Washed by double teams. Hand use and pass-rush moves need to be developed. Will be a 24-year-old rookie.

Bottom Line

Raw, physically gifted, Division II standout with untapped potential given his combination of size, length and movement skills. Will have defensive line coaches drooling in workouts, and has the dimensions and athleticism to warrant consideration as a draftable, developmental investment with positional versatility to play defensive end or three-technique in an even front or five-technique in an odd front.
