Projection

Power-5 Starter

Verified size with length and wide-shouldered frame to fill out to 260-plus. Offers position versatility at college level as edge or defensive lineman. Displays raw athleticism as a two-way player in high school. High ceiling prospect based on physical traits, which includes 40 time in the 4.8s. Possesses strength throughout frame. Plays standing up and comes off edge and with hand on ground for Roman Catholic. Shows burst and some quick twitch at snap. Has body control and demonstrates change of direction in space. Gets into backfield and uses length to corral ball carrier. Is physical at point of attack and works hard to disengage. Can stack-and-shed but has to be more consistent. Demonstrates willingness to work through double teams. Can track down play from behind. Shows ability to disengage and re-direct along line of scrimmage. Has a nice swim move but needs to continue development technique. Has to work on ability to anchor against run when lined up as defensive lineman. Improving hand work to keep offensive linemen off on initial punch is important. Has to continue to develop lower body flexibility to dip shoulder and explode when coming around edge. Multi-year starter for Top 20 program. Has NFL draft potential.
