4-7 Round Day 3

Comparison

D.J. Wonnum Minnesota Vikings

A long-limbed frame with an impressive reach. On the lighter side due to basketball background, but should be able to tack on pounds once working with a college strength coach. One of the more imposing pass rushers in the Sunshine State this cycle given explosive first step and ability to bend. Launches out of his stance and doesn’t give his target much time to escape. Effective with his hands. Hasn't been asked to cover much, but doubles as a tight end on offense and is athletic enough to get open on a regular basis. Will need time to develop some more pass rushing moves and get stronger across the board. Also needs to get better at breaking down and dropping ball carriers. Has the looks of a prospect that will be a multi-year contributor on the defensive line. NFL upside given natural length.

Athletic Background

Also plays basketball. Earned All-County honorable mention honors from The Ledger as a junior. Invited to All-America Bowl.

2020: A member of the The Ledger's Super 16. Got snaps at both defensive end and tight end for a Fort Meade program that went 5-4 and qualified for 1A state playoffs. Missed some time due to COVID-19 protocols, but still totaled 32 tackles and two sacks in six games. Also caught 16 passes for 192 yards and four touchdowns.

2019: The Ledger third-team All-County selection.
