Strong Points

Had a strong senior season after gaining weight and becoming more focused. Finished the season with 10 sacks. Had 23.5 career sacks. Quick off the ball. Consistent bull rusher because of his explosiveness and has developed some counter moves. Quick reacting to the run, strong enough to hold the point and set the edge. Can slide inside and make plays. Plays a little bigger than he measures.

Weak Points

Lacks good natural size. Until 2016 he was mainly a pass-rush specialist. Didn't do much versus the run until 2016. Too small to play DE and has no experience dropping into coverage. Was mainly a power rusher early on, developed some moves in 2016 but still has a limited arsenal.

The Way We See It

Came on in 2016 but still has a long ways to go. Right now he may be a man without a position at the next level. He's too small to play DE in a 4-3 and has no experience in coverage to play OLB in a 3-4. May just be a designated pass rusher and special teams player. Until 2016 he did not look like a draftable prospect. At this time he is a late pick who still has to develop. May need a year on the practice squad.
