Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

Brings versatility to the defensive line because he can play inside or as a 5-technique. Has quick twitch and is explosive with a good change of direction for a prospect of his size. Has verified size and the type of body to play at 260 or add weight and mass and move inside and play at 290 pounds at the college level. Is able to win reps with power or by using technique, and he shows the ability to chase a play along the line of scrimmage. Is quick at the snap, plays low, wins leverage battles and shows sustained effort. Is capable of mixing in moves, and understands how to quickly disengage and use a developed swim move to past an offensive lineman. Willing to use a rip move and his strength and leverage allow him to get around the blocker. Closing speed stands out when he gets within striking distance of the ball carrier. Possesses excellent body control and quick feet, which makes it hard to get him on the ground. Physical at the point of attack and often pushes the offensive lineman back with his initial punch. Power in lower body is evident when getting up and into a blocker. Is quick to disengage and easily re-directs along the line of scrimmage. Uses acceleration at the snap well to feign one way and get past the offensive lineman the other way. Has to continue to develop his strength while refining his move set. Is willing to try different technique but sometimes is mechanical with it. Will have to work on move set combinations. More reps will make it more free-flowing. Continued development in ability to anchor at the point of attack against the run. Productive and disruptive player who often gets into the backfield. Has 22 tackles, including five sacks, in the first five games of his senior season. Is a high-level prospect capable of playing early at a Top 20 program and possesses early-round NFL draft potential.
