Draft Analysis:

  • 5'11" Height
  • 30" Arm Length
  • 248LBS. Weight
  • 9 3/4" Hands



Very productive. Tough competitor who battles hard inside, given his lack of physical dimensions. Has NFL bloodlines -- father played for the Bengals. Two-time team captain.


Has short arms and a nondescript body. Gets moved off the spot by double teams and lacks the bulk and strength to function on the defensive line. Lacks ideal athletic ability to play on his feet.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Decorated, undersized Mid-American Conference nose tackle who became the first player in school history to earn four consecutive, first-team honors. Must prove he can project to fullback in a camp.
