Comparison

Rasheem Green Seattle Seahawks

Soft-bodied defensive lineman with a frame that likely fills out and strengthens up into an interior defender. Deceptively quick, agile and athletic. Has natural movement skills as a pass rusher. Very versatile with edge ability but stoutness to play inside already. Feels the game well and shows instincts to get his hands on the football in throwing lanes. Can dip and bend the edge effectively for a bigger defender. Doesn’t convert speed to power well yet. Needs to get stronger. Would be a finesse interior guy at this stage and needs college strength and conditioning program. Impact power-five prospect that may need some time to shape his body but has second- or third-round NFL Draft upside.
