Comparison

Breeland Speaks Kansas City Chiefs

Great length as an outside linebacker. Added significant weight to handle opposing offensive lineman without costing him his quickness or speed off the edge. More of a pass-rusher than a cover linebacker, but is adequate in coverage. Also plays rugby and has spent offseasons playing that, so still raw as a pure football player. Plays with an edge to his game, good motor and energy. Needs to continue to develop in-play diagnosis and taking proper angles. High ceiling. Likely redshirt candidate but multi-year Power 5 starter and projects as a second-day NFL draft pick.
