First Round

Comparison

Gregory Rousseau Buffalo Bills

Elite defensive end prospect with terrific height and frame length. Tons of space to add mass. Could grow into true strong-side end or limit bulking somewhat to remain a weak-side/hybrid edge player. Ample snaps in odd-front end role and plays engaged vs. the run. Plays hard and makes plays in the trenches vs. heavier foes. Frame and awareness allow for consistent passing-lane disruption. Pass-rushing ceiling is very high. Dangerous when isolated on the outside. Dips well relative to height/length and runs the arc naturally. Suffered a season-ending lower-limb injury to miss final three games of junior season. Still expanding move set and pass-rush nuance. Get-off consistency can still improve. Naturally high pad level sometimes affects leverage. One of the nation's top defensive end prospects in the 2022 class. Should become impact high-major defender with long-term early-round NFL Draft potential.
