Strengths

Fairley has a really nice combination of size, speed and explosiveness. Rare pass rushing talent. Displays tremendous get off. Can get to the quarterback with the bull rush, by shooting the gaps, can counter when initially stopped, and has a wide variety of moves. Gets penetration against the run. Great hands and motor.

Weaknesses

There are some questions about his character and off-the-field work-ethic. Was academically ineligible out of high school and attended junior college. Needs to watch his pad level against the run. Can be pushed back by the double team. Doesn't always keep his emotions in check. Committed multiple personal foul penalties during junior season.
