Player Notes Pros

  • Juiced-up pass rusher with elite burst, lethal fastball as a dominant speed rusher  

  • Explosive, natural edge bender who can dip & flatten around the corner effectively

  • Takes advantage of speed mismatch off the edge with well-timed inside counter moves

  • Very high effort player, consistently chases down plays from the backside 

  • Offers a ton of stand-up value at the NFL level as a 3-4 outside linebacker 

  • Impressive & experienced at dropping into coverage, his instincts are off the charts

  • Has incredible blend of both anticipation & quickness off the football 

  • Explosive and bendy rusher who will win on the outside track in the NFL

  • Has both plus snap anticipation & excellent first step explosiveness 

  • Significant stride length that allows him to immediate challenge on the outside shoulder

  • Gets hips pointed towards the QB quickly & has the lower body bend to take flat angles

  • Flashes a nice stab/swipe sequence to clear OT’s hands and soften his rush angle

Player Notes Cons


  • RED FLAG Dismissed from TCU after he was caught on video assaulting two students

  • Doesn’t have the frame or bulk to handle three-down responsibility as a defensive end

  • Inexperienced as a point of attack run defender. Needs to be more active with hands

  • wins solely on his speed and quickness Lacking tremendously in terms of versatility

  • One-speed rusher who lacks inside move, a power rush, & any pro level hand usage 

  • overestimates his bend, plays out of control leading to wasted reps where he eats turf 

  • Failure to read tackle sets & adjust with inside/power rush sequences is concerning
