Strong Points

Very strong. Quick off the ball. Is able to get penetration in the run game and can be a bit disruptive. Has a solid base, stays low and never gives ground. Does a good job with double teams.

Weak Points

Too heavy, lacks good movement skills. No speed. Loses track of ball at times. Not a pass rusher. While he can be disruptive, he does not make many plays. Has short arms.

The Way We See It

Fourth-year junior entering the draft. Was a top recruit out of high school who made an impact as a freshman and played well his second year. Got hurt in 2015 (knee Injury) and missed the rest of the season. Got heavy this year and he has lost the quickness and explosiveness he once had. He is strong and quick off the ball and that allows him to be a bit disruptive but he doesn't make many plays. Can occupy blocks. Right now he is a late-round pick at best, maybe with another offseason to rehab his knee he regains the explosiveness he had. Not more than a backup at nose right now.
