Comparison

Gervon Dexter Chicago Bears

Classic tall, big-framed defensive lineman with immense bulking capacity and personnel flexibility. Great height and length. Owns physical traits to take on blocks to free up teammates, but functional athleticism that fuels impact playmaking and production. At his best, embodies a point-of-attack titan with stack-and-shed strength. Flashes double team-beating brute force. Capable of punching with power to rock big blockers onto their heels. Shows impressive pursuit range and closing athleticism relative to size. Impact plays not only include sacks and TFLs, but a pair of screen-pass INTs as a junior. Also a volume tackler and rallies back into plays. Throw-around strength combines with promising redirecting quickness to create a terror on the defensive interior. Checks the multi-sport box with encouraging junior-year shot put numbers. Short-area explosiveness corresponds on the field. Naturally high center of gravity sometimes compromises leverage. Plays with active, heavy hands but will need to expand move set as a pass rusher and develop secondary rush plan. Game-wrecker at his best, but need to see more consistency in playmaking ability and down-to-down intensity. Flashed promising mean streak vs. elite competition during Under Armour All-America week to help solidify standing as an elite 2024 defensive line prospect. Possesses coveted combination of measurables, athleticism, and production. Projects as a potential high-major impact player with an NFL Draft early-round ceiling.
