Overview

Played in East-West Shrine Game. Selected first-team All-SoCon in 2014 after being granted a sixth season of eligibility following a season-ending left elbow injury four games into 2013 season. Teamed with 2015 draft prospect Davis Tull to harass quarterbacks all season. Second-team All-SoCon in 2012. Initially signed with Georgia and was there in 2009 and 2010. Redshirted in 2009 with a broken ankle. Lived with his football coach during high school to add stability to his life.

Analysis

Strengths

Georgia transfer who is technically savvy. Has a good feel and instincts for where linemen are headed and where blocks are coming from. Excels with his hands. Gets into opponents quickly with a strong jolt and plays with necessary power and technique to unhinge and discard blockers. Finishes as a tackler and has an adequate tackle radius. Well-schooled pass rusher bringing several moves and counters to the party.

Weaknesses

Played in just five games over his first two seasons at Georgia and was unable to push for playing time. Was a 2009 redshirt and was 23 and 24 years old when dominating against younger, less-talented players at UT-Chattanooga. Comes off the snap a little upright and must remember to maintain bend.

Draft Projection

Round 5

Bottom Line

Skilled pass rusher who understands the position and was simply too athletic and too talented for most of the competition he faced while at Tennessee-Chattanooga. Is a natural fit as a three-technique in a 4-3 defense, but could garner consideration as a 3-4 defensive end if he can prove he's strong enough.
