Three-year starter used at both outside linebacker and defensive end in college. Finished his senior campaign with 72/17/10/0/5 after 62/10/7/0/1 as a junior.
Athletic linebacker best in the box. Quick reading or anticipating run plays, forceful and fast moving up the field and adjusts off the initial block, staying off his feet. Pursues well to the flanks and displays discipline, playing assignment football. Gets average depth on his drops but overall lacks range, instincts and slow locating the ball when it is in the air. Has some size potential and may grow into a pass rushing defensive end or could be an outside linebacker in a three-four scheme. Late Seventh Round.
