Comparison

Arik Armstead San Francisco 49ers

Front-line star with rare combination of physical tools and verified athleticism. Elite height with huge hands and long arms. Played senior year in 6-6, 260 neighborhood and could easily get to 290-plus in college. Edge athleticism with true interior physical upside. Moved from an edge to a DL projection entering senior year and showed in Fall 2023 more reasons for that switch. Capable of playing in space with adequate dip-and-bend flexibility, but excels as a stack-and-shed assailant at the point of attack. Plays well through contact, increasingly as a senior. Displays wide pursuit range fueled by that aforementioned athleticism. Considerable height naturally raises center of gravity/compromises pad level in some situations. Plays at one speed at times and can change up his pacing to enhance pass-rushing nuance. Great production as a junior with 13 sacks, but dipped as a senior (6). Still developing technique and football awareness, but truly one of the elite defensive prospects in the 2024 cycle. Projects as a high-major impact player with the physical specs and long-term upside to become a Day 1 draft candidate.
