Strong Points

All-out competitor who is productive. Is an explosive athlete with a quick first step. Has good instincts and finds the ball. Very good pass rusher at the college level. Very good pursuit player. Good to very good hand use.

Weak Points

Short to play D-end with 32-inch arms. Not as productive versus the run as he is as a pass rusher. Can he play on his feet?

The Way We See It

You can't discount the fact that he had 24.5 sacks the past two seasons against quality competition, but 5-foot-11 edge rushers at the NFL level are few and far between. Goes from snap to whistle on every play. Is best as a pass rusher because of his amazing get-off. There have been short pass rushers who have been successful in the NFL — Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis are the obvious comps, but they are listed at 6-foot-1 and 6-foot-2, respectively, even though neither is quite that tall — so no one can count this guy out. Might have to convert to linebacker to play every down. Won't go as high as his production says he should.
