Projection

First Round

Comparison

C.J. Mosley New York Jets

Passes the eye test with long, athletic frame. Should be able to keep filling out in college. A disruptive linebacker that has found ways to impact games in a variety of different ways. Fluid mover that has no issues getting outside the hashes. Runs at times almost like a gazelle. Excellent in pursuit. Violent striker, lunging into ball carriers before wrapping up. Quickly diagnosis a play and reacts. Navigates through traffic to beat blockers to the spot. Doesn't shy away from contact. Aware in coverage. Produced as a senior totaling 101 tackles while competing in one of the Yellow Hammer State’s lower classifications. Also racked up over 500 yards of offense getting snaps at both running back and wide receiver. Will need to eventually find some more power in his legs and add some bulk in the upper half. Must also continue to evolve as a pass rusher and blitzer. Likely to develop into a multi-year starter at college football’s highest level given length, twitch and physicality. Should be viewed as one of the nation’s top off-ball linebacker prospects. Has the potential be a Day 1 selection in the NFL Draft if things work out.
