Summary

He has come out of nowhere after the All-Star games to become a viable first day selection in the draft...He is strictly an edge rusher that is somewhat undersized, but relies on excellent speed and AA to get to the football. He was virtually unblockable in the Blue-Gray game, and flashed with his AA and quickness at the Senior Bowl. He is not an accomplished player by any stretch of the imagination, and most of his skills are raw. He does not have enough size to be a force vs. the run, and he can be engulfed by big OTs.. He is at his best in 1 on 1 matchups, and he will usually win those battles, hands down. This is an interesting guy to develop AA, and he should be able to contribute early as a nickel type pass rusher.
