Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

Long-framed linebacker with good height and very good length. Owns virtually college-ready size as an off-ball linebacker with frame space to possibly grow into a full-time edge player, depending on scheme. Ample experience as off-ball linebacker and walking up to the edge. Flashes chase-down athleticism, especially in backside situations aligned on the edge. Shows consistent explosion from two-point stance as an edge rusher in pass-rushing situations. Closes well in pursuit. Athleticism and anticipation allow him to beat blocks to spots to make plays vs. the run. Has shown some encouraging ability to pick up backs in the flats and drop into short zone in coverage situations. Got some offensive snaps as a sophomore as an attached tight end and flexed out. Displayed promising ball skills and impressive functional athleticism as a pass-catcher. Three-sport athlete who competes in track and field and shows impressive bounce and functional athleticism on the basketball court. Arrives high as a tackler at times. Packs some pop and length aids in tackling ability, but can clean up technique and consistency. Has lined up over the slot on occasion but owns limited context to man coverage ability. Might be a bit of a 'tweener physically. Still, possesses a terrific profile for an off-ball linebacker thanks to multi-sport participation, two-way snaps, and varied defensive roles, along with physical tools to potentially fill a full-time standing edge spot. Projects to the high-major level as an impact defensive presence with long-term early-round NFL Draft potential.

Athletic Background

Three-sport athlete who also plays basketball and competes in track and field. Played both ways as a sophomore, getting snaps at TE, OLB, and on the edge.
