Comparison

Malik Jefferson Cincinnati Bengals

Unverified size but looks tall and fairly long on tape. Listed size may be a tad big, but no lack of size or frame here. Active, athletic linebacker who could grow into full-time EDGE player in the right scheme. Closes fast. Flashes terrific acceleration in pursuit. Strong production as a senior with nine-plus tackles and about 1 1/2 sacks per game. Takes good angles to the ball. Dangerous in backside pursuit. Arrives with purpose. Track and field context with encouraging junior long jump (21-3) and eyebrow-raising 11.31 100 as a high school freshman. Will need more strength to stand up to and shed P5 blockers. Good tackler but arrives a bit high at times. Limited context to coverage ability. Motor runs high and plays with his hair on fire. Could play hybrid stand-up role or multiple off-ball linebacker spots depending on scheme. Projects to high-major level as potential impact player with long-term NFL Draft ceiling.

Athletic Background

2020: Lined up all over Germantown's defense as a senior, including ILB, OLB, and EDGE.
2019: Predominantly played defense but also got limited snaps on offense (16 carries, 76 yards) as a junior.
