BIO: Three-year starter who also saw limited action with the first team as a freshman. All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 52/12/9.
POSITIVES: Explosive pass rusher who flashes on the scene. Has great first-step quickness and displays speed in pursuit. Smart, diagnoses the action and plays hard until the whistle blows. Plays with excellent balance and pad level.
NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk, strength and can be handled at the point.
ANALYSIS: A collegiate defensive end, LaCasse projects as a rush linebacker in the NFL for a 34 defense. Offers added value on special teams at the next level.
