Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

Comparison

Davon Godchaux Miami Dolphins

Thick, muscular lineman with NFL frame built to play inside or occasionally outside on the line. Minimal bad weight on the road to 300 pounds. More athletic than appearance would suggest with speed and power to boot. Not twitchy but can beat blockers with finesse or strength. Heavy handed with some polish as a pocket pusher and overwhelming power at times. Destined to play inside. Could use lateral work to match vertical ability but should be physically ready to compete early in college career. Should become a multi-year starter at the Power 5 level and eventually a day-two type NFL draft selection.
