Brian Dohn National Recruiting Analyst

Projection

4-7 Round Day 3

Verified size with plus length and speed with multi-sport profile. Has plenty of room for frame growth and can easily add 25 pounds without losing athletic traits. Impact player in high school as linebacker/edge rusher and running back. Also well-rounded basketball player. Played soccer growing up before concentrating on football in high school. Verified high 4.6 speed with shuttle in 4.2s, which showcases change of direction and acceleration. Ridiculously productive with 1,700 yards of total offense and 27 touchdowns and 40 tackles, including seven sacks. Best suited to play inside linebacker but possesses some traits to play outside. Instinctual and plays at high rate of speed. Plays with leverage and bends well in lower body. Can engage and still drive legs to get around corner on blitz. Plays with a physicality beyond his current size. Incredibly quick in shooting gaps. Closes well on ball carriers. Shows speed to chase play down on back side. Durable and reliable. Does not quit on plays. Uses quick hands well to stay off blocks. Has athleticism and speed to drop into coverage in flat or take running back one-on-one. Has to develop strength throughout frame, and particularly in upper body. Needs to show he can stack and shed on consistent basis. Will need to develop in weight room before being a factor on college field but has ability to play for Top 10 program. Potential mid-round NFL draft pick.
