Player Notes Pros

  • When able to operate from an open surface, eyes, hands, & feet always work in sync 

  • Looks NFL edge defender, possesses prototypical size, length, power, & explosiveness 

  • Physical gifts are plenty, knows how to maximize length as pass rusher & run stopper 

  • Good understanding of gap discipline, impressive set-up moves with strong, active hands

  • Constantly tries to stack together a couple of effective moves in his rush attack 

  • Has decent amount of bend and short area agility for his size to dip and flatten

  • Ticks every measurable box that you can find. Long stride & long arms with good mass

  • Has a great first step that maximizes both snap anticipation & initial explosiveness

  • Effective out of tilt technique gets right to an OT’s outside shoulder & putting him down 

  • Has developed an effective swipe & a dip to finish rushes along the outside corner

  • hand usage generally is coming along nicely, and he understand the timing necessary

  • Bend is amazing to take outside rushes to the QB’s set point & at least create hurries

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Went to Syracuse after Texas A&M rescinded offer after a 2nd degree robbery charge

  • Blockers regularly are successful with setting a hard edge or beating him to his spots

  • Setting up outside moves & coming back inside were non-existent throughout college 

  • Motor runs hot and cold, especially when he’s not in a pass rush situation

  • Shows some stiffness moving laterally, he is more of a linear athlete 

  • Starts reps with a false step, needs to string together plays with consistent technique
