Projection

First Round


Impressive physical size for a junior checking at 6-foot-5 and weighing in the 265 pound range this guy has all the measurables you want. Long athletic build to go along with impressive arm length and wingspan put him at an elite level with these traits.
This top notch edge has unique athleticism for someone his size. Possessing excellent agility, change of direction, bend and power makes him one of the best players in the country. He is light on his feet and plays with very good power and technique on the edge and in the run game with room to continue to develop and improve. As a pass rusher he does a good job using speed to power as well as having a good dip and rip move and always using active hands to prevent lineman from latching on to him. He consistently gains ground on his rush without stopping his feet. Displays a twitch out of his stance that translates to explosion once he makes contact with the blocker along with a strong punch to control and disengage to defeat the blocker. Can redirect when needed without hesitation to make plays away from him with good runs and chase effort. As a two-way player you are treated to an athlete that could be a top-flight tight end prospect with his burst, excellent body control to make plays on the ball as well as serving as a more than adequate blocker in the run game. He is a guy that moves easy and natural with enough speed to create separation as a receiver where he makes many plays as.
As he continues to mature physically, gains strength and maintain his athleticism he is a player that can play up and down the defensive line and on the edge. His potential is unlimited, he has the profile and ability to be a early starter and multiple all-conference performer in college.
