Projection

4-7 Round Day 3

A big-framed pass rusher with some developmental upside. Looks the part as he’s pushing 6-foot-5, 265 pounds and equipped with a near 83-inch wingspan. A limber mover that can bend his knees and essentially hug the ground. Uses rare length to his advantage as he will dispatch blockers at the point of attack and make his way into the backfield. Doesn't exactly labor when asked to redirect and has shown that he can hunt down ball carries while in pursuit. Displays a nice initial burst and is pretty effective with his hands out on the perimeter, but has a knack for bailing on rushes and isn’t one that’s going to consistently win with effort. Has worked primarily as a three and five-technique in a traditional four-man front on Friday nights and found success in both roles totaling eight sacks as a sophomore and eight more as a junior, but figures to eventually slide inside given growth potential. Will likely need a few semesters in the weight room to add some functional strength, but has some of the required traits to eventually make a difference up front at the Power Five level. Could emerge as an impact player at some point down the line and possibly even an early-round NFL Draft pick with his measurables, but must buy into the process and put in some sweat equity as he needs to improve overall technique. Ultimately, should be viewed as a boom or bust prospect at a position where most decision makers aren't afraid to roll the dice.
