Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Jeffrey McCulloch Texas Longhorns

Lean, long-framed athlete with ample space to add bulk. Displays impressive functional explosiveness. Gets off the ball in a hurry and closes fast in pursuit. Has played on the edge and as an off-line linebacker. Could fit either role in college, depending on physical development. Natural bender who gets low as a speed rusher. Dangerous blitzer. Wingspan crowds passing lanes as he closes on QB. Competent into coverage. Disruptive at the catch point thanks to length. Must get bigger to maximize frame and strength at the next level. That will also aid arriving power as a tackler. Occasionally shows initial hesitation in pursuit before chasing with impressive speed. Athletic, toolsy linebacker who could fit multiple schemes. High-major prospect who could become multi-year starter with long-term NFL Draft ceiling.
