Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Jarrell Owens Oklahoma State Cowboys

Long-framed edge defender with good height self-reported seven-foot wingspan. Owns tons of space to add good weight in college. Predominantly played in HS with a hand on the ground, but could possibly stand up on the edge in the right scheme. Frame potential also suggests strong-side possibilities. Naturally a weak-side four-man end. Brings an undeniable swagger to the field. Raw as a pass-rusher but has a ton of potential. Dangerous in backside pursuit. Closes fast on the ball. Likely scheme-versatile. Must expand pass-rushing arsenal. Gaining good weight will be key maximize strength in combating P5 running game. Can improve use of his hands, as well as get-off consistency. Plays for state title-winning HS, but will face adjustments coming from small-school level. Should develop into a quality P5 starter with plenty of long-term potential.
