First Round

Good height and length with a projectable frame that fits varying roles in multiple fronts. Strong overall athletic profile that includes two-way snaps. Also a good basketball player with sport-specific skill and some explosive athleticism that manifests on the court and the gridiron. Proven combine athleticism with encouraging testing numbers.

Extensive snaps across the defensive front in four-point, three-point, and two-point stances playing outside and inside. Limited reps as an in-line tight end and short-yardage ball carrier.

On-field athleticism is great relative to size. Displays elite redirection ability and lateral range for a front-line defender. Great improvisational pursuer thanks to suddenness in movements. Redirects and cuts like a tight end running routes. Closes fast with chase-down juice.

Plays with busy hands that stay active and violent. Instinctive ability to fill creases like water through rock. Understands how to use body leverage and lane leverage to get through holes. Slippery at the point of attack. Makes it difficult for blockers to get squared-up paws on him.

Shows impressive play strength that produces bull-rush power, but also flashes advanced pass-rush nuance. Dangerous with his long levers and ability to turn the corner tightly. Displays natural counter instincts fostered by surprising quick-twitch body reactiveness and movement skill.

Enormous production as a freshman and sophomore (40.5 sacks). Production noticeably dropped from sophomore (21.5 sacks) to junior year (7.5) despite playing 12 games each season. Gets off the line with burst but snap anticipation needs to improve. A tad high-cut, which compromises pad level at times. Occasionally a bit delayed in recovery from more powerful POA punchers.

One of the nation's best defensive line prospects across multiple classes. Could live as a jumbo edge in a two-point stance or bulk to a true interior player (or play any spots between those two ends of the spectrum). Should fit any front. Projects as a potential impact player at the upper-tier P5 level with long-term high-round NFL Draft potential.
