Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Josh Paschal Detroit Lions

Big-bodied defensive end prospect with JUCO playing experience with a hand on the ground and standing on the edge. Projected to a strong-side end role but realistically could provide position versatility depending on scheme, including continuing to stand up at the P5 level in the right system. Good height and length, while built fairly athletically relative to size. Aggressive, high-motor player who rallies to the ball with encouraging vigor. Strong tackler who can provide the big hit. Flashes impressive pursuit ability for a player of his size. Quick off the ball. Shows good burst and top-end speed in the open field. Needs to improve hand violence and arm extension when engaged, especially if moving to a three-point stance. Can improve balance and body control. Could get exposed in coverage if asked to play a standing edge role and occasionally drop. Good pass-rusher but relies on speed and motor instead of full array of moves. Plays too high at times. JUCO standout who could provide instant impact at the Power 5 level.
