Brian Dohn National Recruiting Analyst

Projection

Power-5 Starter

Verified size with length. Has frame and skill set for edge rusher. Will be able to play at 230 pounds. Incredibly productive player with 28 sacks, 129 tackles as junior. Plays both sides of ball in various roles at Southern. High-level athlete with excellent burst at snap. Twitchy prospect gets off quickly and stay lows while eating up space in first few steps. Plays standing up and with hand on ground. Has motor and works to fight through double teams. Changes direction well and chases down plays on back side. Timing and anticipation of snap are excellent. Shows closing speed and body control. Uses a swim move at times, especially when feigning outside and moving inside. Has to continue to develop in the weight room. Relies heavily on physical talent but must refine technique. At times loops to the backfield rather than dipping shoulder and exploding toward ball carrier. Has to show he can be consistent in stacking and shedding when ball is run at him. Has athleticism to drop into coverage but needs to work on technique of it. Multi-year starter at Top 20 Power 5 program. Size could keep from being high NFL draft pick but has NFL draft potential.
