“His length and movement skills are outstanding, but he’s very raw. ” –Mike Mayock
An absolute physical specimen for a defensive end, teams will be lining up to draft him high and develop him as a project. Has the initial burst to get outside quickly off the snap, and the technique to counter that with inside moves at other times. Long and strong, he is a prototype of what many teams are looking for in a defensive end that can do it all. Needs time to develop, and the lack of experience against top competition will cause him not to be drafted as high as some defensive ends that are not as physically gifted.
