School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-1, 314
40 Time:
5.15

BIOGRAPHY: Part-time starter the past three seasons in the Tigers´┐Ż rotational system. Senior totals included 28/3.5/2 after 28/1 as a junior.

POSITIVES: Favorite is a low-to-the ground defensive tackle with a stout build. He offers a good degree of upside potential, and his game should improve as he receives more playing time in the coming years. Favorite is worth the investment of a late-round pick as he is a prospect who could develop into a productive NFL player several years down the road.

NEGATIVES: Does not always play to his size, and easily turned from his angle of attack by a single blocker. Shows marginal pass rushing skills.

ANALYSIS: Short, explosive defensive tackle who beats blockers off the ball with his quick first step. Plays with good lean, pad level, and works his hands throughout the action. Displays good body control, quickly changes direction and gives a lot of effort. Works his hands throughout the action and flashes on the scene, playing with a good degree of explosion.

PROJECTION: 7-FA
