Strong Points

Good size for a 4-3 ‘Sam.' Long arms. Has very good speed, is explosive and has quick change of direction. When rushing the passer, he can come off the edge with speed and power and knows how to put moves together. Has a good drop and shows awareness in coverage and can transition quickly. Has good hands. Plays with good instincts, gets to the ball and can make plays. Had an excellent Combine.

Weak Points

Has marginal size to play OLB in a 3-4 scheme but has growth potential to around 255. Missed the first month of the 2016 season after getting into a fight with a teammate and breaking a bone in his face. Was a multi-sport athlete when he arrived at Houston (was on basketball team) and has only been full-time with football a couple years. Still raw.

The Way We See It

This is a player on the come but not quite ready for primetime. He has the physical traits (speed, athleticism) but needs to get a little bigger. Should have some scheme versatility if he can get to 255. Will be a ‘Sam' in a 4-3 and an edge rusher in 3-4. While he shows coverage skills, he still needs to develop technique and feel in coverage. May be a year or two away from starting but can be a special teams terror while he is learning. Good mid-round pick.
