Strong Points

Adequate size. Very good athlete with change of direction and balance. Very quick first step, stays low and has quick hands. Very good edge pass rush ability, has counter moves and shows quick hands. Can close off block to the QB. Quick to find the ball in the run game, can hold the point, shed and make plays. Consistent tackler. Has played on his feet and dropped into coverage. Very good competitor who tries to play a physical game.

Weak Points

A bit short and small for a DE. Can get caught inside on run plays and lose contain. While he has a quick first step, ran only 4.82 at the Combine.

The Way We See It

Fourth-year junior who is entering the draft. Had a dominant 2016 with 9.0 sacks, 12 tackles for loss and 61 total tackles. Has 18 career sacks. While he can play defensive end in a 4-3 scheme, he looks more like a 3-4 outside linebacker who can rush the passer from a two- or three-point stance. Has the agility to drop into coverage as well as awareness. Will be a first-round prospect and should play and contribute as a rookie.
