Analysis

Strengths

Looks the part out of the tunnel. Tall, well-proportioned base end with long arms. Smooth mover in space with ability to change direction and chase boot-action quarterbacks. Flashes a second gear when in close pursuit. Can get skinny and knife through gap when motivated. Mindful of contain and rarely loses sight of ball. Active with hands in passing lane when sensing pass attempt.

Weaknesses

Had more missed tackles (4) than "impact tackles" (gain of 2 yards or less that do not result in first down -- 3). Toughness seems lacking on tape. Takes too much tape work to find physical, competitive snaps. Plays too tall and shows very little fire in his hands. Too content to stay blocked. Allows tight ends to take him out of run plays and doesn't get enough mileage from his length. Disappointing play speed. Lacks upfield burst off snap to threaten edge. Must learn and develop a go-to pass-rush move.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Has the look of an NFL starter until the tape starts running. Has some physical traits, but play demeanor, competitiveness and a lack of consistent production could overrule perceived "potential." Must have a big offseason to reestablish his draft stock.
