Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Alton Robinson Seattle Seahawks

Bit of a 'tweener physically. Adequate height, relatively lean build, though bigger through the lower half with ample upper-body space to add mass. Above average length.

Experience in varied capacities, including traditional defensive end, standing edge, and off-ball linebacker. May best project as hybrid edge player who can occasionally drop as needed.

Plays consistently hard. Shows chase-down athleticism and good linear pursuit speed. Closes with conviction and can deliver big hits. Makes effort plays vs. the run and as a rusher.

Productive junior year for loaded Texas 5A D-II state championship team. Flashes some dip-and-bend ability when running the arc. Aware in short zone when asked to drop.

Snap anticipation as a rusher can improve. Will need to add strength and mass to stand up to P5 LOS combat. Can improve redirecting burst, though limited testing data is encouraging. Move set needs expansion. Lacks consistent counter ability when initial attack fizzles.

Intriguing prospect who could possibly fit multiple roles in varying schemes. Play style and physical specs suggest highest potential as a two-point edge player who plays uncovered with ability to freelance at times. Projects to the P5 level with the potential to become a difference maker as a multi-year starter.

Athletic Background

2021: Recorded 12 sacks as a junior for a South Oak Cliff team that went 16-0 and won the Texas 5A D-II state title.
