BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who posted career numbers of 65/21.5/12 as a senior after 25/12.5/10.5 the prior season.
POSITIVES: "Undersized college defensive end who projects to rush linebacker in the NFL. Displays good movement skills, fluid moving
down the line of scrimmage, and makes plays laterally. Shows speed off the edge, quickly changes direction, and attacks ball
carriers. Flies around the field, shows ability in pursuit and rarely off his feet."
NEGATIVES: Easily controlled at the point of attack by a single blocker. Rarely asked to make plays in reverse on the college level.
ANALYSIS: "Butler possesses solid size and above-average athleticism, giving him an advantage at the next level. He'll be used as an
outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment, and Butler could be used as a pass rush specialist early in his NFL career."
