Comparison

Stephon Tuitt Pittsburgh Steelers

Big-framed defensive lineman with look of an edge player and frame potential/strength that could fit multiple roles in varying schemes. At least 6-foot-5 with a wingspan verified at 7-foot-1 earlier in high school career. Very encouraging testing as early as sophomore year with a sub-5.0 40 and 4.6 short shuttle. Verified athleticism shows in get-off quickness and consistency. Good athletic background that includes basketball. Impressive build that will only get larger in a college weight-training program. Natural athleticism flashes in playmaking ability at the point of attack. Bends well for a player of his size and displays eyebrow-raising pursuit ability. Heavy-handed and punchy both ways as a playmaking D-lineman and block-first in-line tight end. Overwhelms high school competition with size-strength-athleticism combination. Plays with a general violence fueled by surprising suddenness. Fall senior season wiped out by coronavirus pandemic. Good but not great production as a junior. Can continue to expand move set and pass-rushing nuance but owns elite physical tools and the motor to accentuate them. Projects as a multi-year high-major starter with long-term early-round NFL Draft ceiling.
