Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Chris Wormley Pittsburgh Steelers

Big bodied prospect. Has length and height, but also has good bulk to him and can still carry 30-40 more pounds and be effective. Shows burst and explosiveness as well as straight line ability to run plays down. Gets off the ball quickly at times and makes plays in the backfield. Longer strider who can cover ground in pursuit. Shows enough flexibility and bend to be able to get leverage. In general, those aspects of his game just need to be more consistent. And he needs to improve with his hands. He projects to be a bigger strongside end or a 3-4 defensive end, maybe an inside-outside combo guy as well. Has good upside and tools. Outside possibility he gets a look as an offensive tackle based on his frame and skill set. Still developing, but could accelerate quickly come college and we would not bet against him playing early in his career. Projects as a multi-year starter at the Power 5 level.
