Agile and athletic. Can get off snap quickly and has length to fluster interior blockers if coached up. Active interior pass rusher who uses head fakes and foot quickness to open doors to a guard?s edge. Able to string together pass rush moves and counters. At his best on the move. Can be tough to reach and secure for offensive linemen thanks to lateral quicks. When rush has stalled, will gather himself and look to get his hands in the passing lane. Plus change of direction talent and can hound a runner who tries to bounce it outside. Adequate power at the point of attack and has experience as both a one and two gap defender. Productive tackler with extended tackle radius to get in on the action. Will win if consistently single blocked.


Thin from his knees down. Pad level stays high. Looks top-heavy in his play. Upright movements limit effectiveness in twists. Doesn?t own his spot in the grass consistently enough thanks to leverage issues. Needs added strength in lower half and to play with wider base to improve balance. Play was ragged and fatigued against Michigan State in the fourth quarter when his team needed him most. Not even a participation ribbon as a bull ­rusher. Needs to play square to the line of scrimmage and utilize his punch. Was much bigger factor in offensive backfield in 2014 than he was this year. Inconsistent motor. Arrested for solicitation in a prostitution sting in December and was suspended from the Fiesta Bowl.
