Power 4 Starter

Reminds Us Of

Josh Paschal Detroit Lions

Big-framed strong-side end type with virtually college-ready size, but space to add more bulk. Owns physical tools that could stay outside in strong-side role or potentially bulk into an interior spot. Fits multiple schemes as well. Strength-oriented player who shows shedding ability vs. the run. Active hands help pass-rush ability. Adequate in get-off consistency and quickness. Flashes impressive straight-line closing ability. Strength allows for maneuvering blockers where he wants and also manifests as a tackler. Displays some promising pass-rush nuance from a technical standpoint. Per game production dipped significantly from junior to senior season. Needs to play lower. Pad level and leverage often compromised. Straight-line closer who can improve redirecting ability. Balance and body control can improve. Power Five-caliber defensive lineman with high physical floor who could fit various fronts and schemes. Could develop into multi-year starter and owns physical tools that could allow for long-term NFL Draft potential.
