Strong Points

Speed and athleticism. Gets off the ball quickly. Has some outside pass-rush ability. When he stays low, he flashes being able to push the pocket. Flashes moments of good run defense.

Weak Points

Lacks size and has little growth potential. Not overly instinctive and can lose sight of the ball. Not very disciplined, breaks contain too often. Has missed time in each of the past two seasons with injuries. Had season-ending surgery last season.

The Way We See It

Originally enrolled at Ohio State and played there two seasons with one start his sophomore year (2013). Transferred to Akron and sat out 2014. Has been a starter the past two seasons and has flashed outside pass-rush skills. Has speed and get-off and can put some moves together. Not disciplined though and will break some assignments. Speed and pass rush traits are his greatest asset. Might get drafted late because of that.
