CooperPetagna
Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

Verified at 6-foot-3 and 300-pounds plus, possesses a broad frame and ideal length for the position. Possesses growth potential to add additional weight to frame if necessary. Displays good athleticism at multiple positions in a base 4-3 defense.

Primarily positioned as a three-technique, appears to have a good first step off the line of scrimmage. Exhibits good foot and body quickness for his size, nimble athlete at 300-pounds plus. Shows the ability to bend and react at the point of attack. Displays heavy hands and plays with power, showing the ability to consistently penetrate behind the line of scrimmage. Can anchor the run, disrupt passing lanes and offer pass-rushing upside as an interior defender. Violent defender that plays with read and react recognition and consistently impacts the game.

Position versatile defensive lineman that could play situationally as a three technique in a 4-3 but more than likely projects as a one technique at the next level. Can also play in a 3-4 defense. Better athlete than his size projects, adds value in his position and scheme versatility. Plays fast and reactive. Projects to a high level multi-year starter at a Power Five program at the next level.
