Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

Comparison

Chad Greenway Minnesota Vikings

Very good, versatile football player and athlete at his size. Has not only played linebacker, but also tailback and quarterback and played those positions well. Also a good basketball player who shows bounce and athletic ability on the court. Runs well for a bigger guy, can get to the places on the field he needs to to make tackles and showed that as a runner on offense also. Smart, makes proper reads and fills as a backer and size and strength make him a sure tackler. Can still get generally more explosive as a hitter and athlete. At his size, the question is mostly about future projection. SAM is a good possibility, stand-up edge rusher is possible and if his body keeps growing, defensive end is in the picture. But he is a good enough athlete to project to linebacker unless nature just takes over and he gets too big. But whatever his base position is, he has shown he can drop into space and rush the passer, so he should be able to fill multiple roles in multiple defensive schemes.

Athletic Background

2020: Played QB and LB as a junior; accounted for 1,953 total yards of offense and 30 TD's, helping Traverse City Central to the Michigan Division 2 state semifinals.
