BIO: Started 13 games as a senior compiling 68 tackles, two sacks and five tackles for loss. Posted only 21 tackles as a junior when he started a pair of games.

POSITIVES: Athletic defensive end with nice size-speed numbers. Moves well laterally, fluid if asked to twist or stunt and redirects to the action. Quick changing direction, displays a burst of closing speed and pursues well from the backside. Good hand technique and fights hard.

NEGATIVES: Must get stronger and bend his knees. Not overly instinctive and slow to locate.

ANALYSIS: To this point better athlete than football player and has never taken his game to the next level.

PROJECTION: Early Sixth Round
