Strong Points

Two-year starter. Has good size and good-to-real-good strength. Has short area quickness and can change direction. Shows the power to handle a double team and hold the point. Flashes good instincts. Has some inside pass-rush ability.

Weak Points

Is often the last man off the ball. Plays in spurts, don't see consistent effort. Only makes the plays he should. Can be slow to shed and gets tall.

The Way We See It

A third-year junior entering the draft, he is an enigma with talent. Problem is you don't always see the talent. He is often the last man off the ball on the plays he should make. He flashes talent, but he doesn't always give you the level of effort necessary to maximize it. Has some underachiever to him. He will make it in the league because he does have the talent but how long he lasts is up to him. A real hit-or-miss prospect who should get drafted late but could go higher to a team that's convinced they're the one to teach him how to be a pro and unleash that talent. If a team can get a sack every two games out of him as he did last two seasons at LSU he's a keeper.
