Reminds Us Of

Robert Quinn Philadelphia Eagles

Has lean, athletic frame that will be able to pack on good weight at the next level. One of California’s top pass rushers since his sophomore season. Has advanced pass rush instincts and can beat linemen in a variety of ways. Edge speed is elite, but he does have a bulrush in his arsenal as well. Has good closing speed. Is better against the run when he is chasing from the backside. Needs to improve at the point of attack on runs at him. Must continue to get stronger and more physical. Can take over a game when motivated but he does have a tendency to coast at times. At his best, will be a dominant college football player and first-round NFL Draft pick.

Sources Tell Us

“Kayvon has all the NFL tools you’re looking for in terms of the measurables. He’s long, athletic, quick and extremely talented, he has the ability to play football for as long as he wants. He can get out of control at times and play undisciplined. I think part of that is maturity. He’ll need to find a college program that will give him structure and not allow him to freelance and keep his attitude in check. He’s a talker and plays a little chippy at times but from a pure talent standpoint, he’s an NFL kid all the way.” - Opposing HS head coach
