Prototypical frame with broad shoulders and long arms. Posted 36.5 tackles for loss and 21 sacks since 2017. Excellent snap reaction and is first off the ball. Slippery and gets skinny into gaps to disrupt. Plays behind his long arms. Traits to punch and control blocker's frame in setting edge. Plays with toughness and unloads shoulder into leads and pulls. Skilled hands for quick wins and sheds. Projectable power rusher on next level. Talent to convert early leads in the pass rep into sacks. Long, flailing arms with violent hands. Targets tackle's inside or outside hand when attacking punch. Base to drive through redirect blocks and squeeze pocket. Low, smooth clockwise spin move has potential. Attentive in redirecting tight ends into routes.


Below-average fluidity and agility in movement. Unable to sustain early burst at the top of the rush. Hands and feet not always in unison. Inside moves and transitions can be mechanical and awkward. Average burst to close. Rush speed takes a big hit in the fourth quarter. Hands linger and lack suddenness. Struggles to gather weight and veer off path to tail pocket-climbers. Limited lateral quickness and change of direction in space. Could use better knee bend. Suspect anchor against angle blocks. Slow to unglue once tackles capture his frame. Marginal open-field tackling ability.
