Strong Points

Tall and long, very good athlete with speed. Has bend coming off the edge. Can use his hands, shows he can cover man to man. Good to very good overall pass coverage skills. Good tackler. Competes, good space player.

Weak Points

Narrow frame, lacks bulk and doesn’t have the frame to get much heavier. Can get overpowered by bigger people. Sack production isn’t what it should be given his speed. Will be a 24-year-old rookie.

The Way We See It

Third-year junior who is entering the draft. Spent a year in prep school after high school. Has been a starter since midway through his freshman year. A tall, long and lean player who is used a variety of ways. Lines up inside and outside, up and down. A very good athlete with speed and is very good in space. Has his problems near the line of scrimmage. Lacks top strength and bulk and can get overpowered. Has to make plays with his speed and quickness. That won’t happen at the next level. Will get drafted high because of his athleticism, but I feel unless used properly he will struggle in the NFL. Has to be picked by the right team.
