Strong Points

Had as good a postseason as a player can have. Had a strong Senior Bowl and followed that up with a great Combine. Has speed, change of direction and explosiveness. Tough, competitive and aggressive. An all-out performer on every play. Has very good initial quickness, stays low and can use his hands. Keeps blocker off his body. Has a variety of pass rush moves and can dip his shoulder and get under offensive linemen. Very good production versus good competition. Instinctive player who is seldom caught out of position.

Weak Points

May lack the bulk to play down as a DE in a 4-3. Doesn't have a lot of experience dropping into coverage. Looks like a strider at times.

The Way We See It

The postseason has taken him from a third-to-fourth-rounder to a solid second-rounder. This is a fun player to watch. A great competitor who makes plays. Top pass rusher (21 sacks last two years) with moves and power. A technique sound player who can use his hands and natural traits to make plays. Has shown he can drop into coverage when needed. Versatile in that both the 4-3 and 3-4 teams will have a lot of interest. Easy Day 2 selection who will play right away as a rookie.
