Strong Points

Has excellent 3-4 OLB size. Good athlete with a short burst. Long arms with adequate hand use to shed FCS-level blocks. Has the flexibility and dip to get under opponents when coming off the edge. Flashes playmaking ability. Consistent run defender.

Weak Points

Originally enrolled at Nebraska but was banned from the campus following a public indecency charge. Flashes but doesn't consistently show dominating ability versus FCS level of competition. Basically he is raw and needs time and coaching. Can he pass the character test?

The Way We See It

Sat out the 2014 season then enrolled at Youngstown in 2015, where he reunited with Bo Pelini. Was a role player in 2015, but really came on this past season with 10.5 sacks and 17.5 tackles for loss. Has the athletic ability and talent to play in the NFL. Needs added strength and technique work but has eventual starter talent if he does things right. Has to get by the character check in order to get drafted and has upside if he does. Can play right end in a 4-3 or be an OLB in a 3-4 if he shows he can drop into coverage.
