Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

A highly productive pass rusher that wins not only with technique, but also one of the best motors in the class of 2023. Not the biggest point-of-attack player, but it doesn’t matter because he shoots into the backfield with a game plan and is extremely effective at simply just putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Totaled an absurd 29.5 sacks as a junior down in Miami-Dade County. Followed that up with arguably the best performance of his young career as he racked up three sacks in a season-opening upset of the national powerhouse that is IMG Academy. Ability to plant, redirect and make stops outside of the hashes is extremely rare for someone his age as he’s quick to read and react. Has been deployed primarily as an edge player throughout much of his prep career, but has also gotten some looks on the inside and shown that he can make a difference in the middle with his heavy hands and overall physical demeanor. Lack of verified data points isn’t ideal, but no real reason to question his ability to make a difference at the Power Five level given what he has put on tape over the years. Will likely need some time to get adjusted to the speed and demands of big-time college football, but could carve out a role early on at the next level as a situational rusher before eventually setting in as a regular up front for the school of his choice. Tweener measurables won’t be for everyone, but the ability to consistently flush out pockets is extremely valuable in an era where everyone wants to air it out.
