Strong Points

Excellent size with long arms and good strength and power. Flashes dominating ability where he is quick off the ball, sheds and makes plays. Has some interior pass rush skills. Good athlete with change of direction and balance, has a burst. Has knocked down a number of passes and blocked kicks.

Weak Points

Missed 2015 with an ACL injury. Does not play hard down after down and game after game. Inconsistent read and react skills. Mild-mannered personality, doesn't seem like a "tough" guy. Has a tendency to get tall and then is slow to shed. Not a consistent pursuit player. Combine workout was average for a D-lineman. Might lack dedication to the game.

The Way We See It

Two-year starter at defensive tackle and nose tackle. Flashes the ability to make plays and has dominated at times but can also look average. If you grade the flashes, he could go high but has too many poor plays. May not have a defensive mentality and might be better off as an offensive tackle. Has the height, length, strength and athleticism to be very good on offense. Workouts and interviews will have a lot to say on where he gets drafted. Will need some time but it could pay off.
