First Round

Reminds Us Of

Randy Gregory Dallas Cowboys

Verified at 6-foot-4 plus and 215-pounds in February of 2023, appears to possess growth potential to add an additional 20 to 25-pounds to his frame at the next level. Flashes outstanding athleticism off the edge as a 3-4 standup outside linebacker.

Displays an explosive first step off the line of scrimmage and flashes elite initial foot and body quickness at the point of attack. Fluid athlete with exceptional play speed and agility. Shows the ability to bend the edge and possesses good burst to close ability. Demonstrates excellent lateral change of direction ability and exhibits the ability to play in space both on the line of scrimmage and lined up as an off-ball linebacker.

Shows the ability to consistently win with speed and athleticism off the perimeter. Displayed improved play strength and play speed off the edge as a senior, showing the ability to win with speed to power at the ponit of attack and anchor against the run game.

Projects as a 3-4 OLB at the next level with ability to develop into one of the game's most prolific pass rushers early in his development as well as a potential Top-16 NFL Draft choice. Rare combination of speed, athleticism and length make him one of the most intriguing pass rushers in the cycle as he only appears to be scratching the surface of his physical and technical upside. Expect some early returns on investment at the next level.
