2 of 3


Great run-defender.

Great pursuit to the ball-carrier.

Explodes off the LOS, then reads & reacts to the play very well.

Great leaping ability for batting passes down and impairing throwing lanes.

Can use speed to blow by blockers, or strength to bull-rush through them.

Good use of hands when shedding blockers.

Versatile. Lined up at defensive tackle, end, and linebacker


Switched between defensive line and linebacker in college. What is his best fit at NFL level?

Limited time playing football.

Must prove he’s dedicated to being a professional football player.

Get’s too high at times with pad level and loses his leverage.
