Summary

He is a somewhat underrated player that really caught some NFL teams' eyes at the Senior Bowl, where he showed excellent quickness and explosiveness, and he may be a guy moving up the draft list.. He is a very productive player with a great motor and work ethic, he never quits on a play, and has decent backside chase abilities. He is not a particularly gifted athlete, although his mobility is decent. But he makes plays on effort.. He has good inside quickness, but not great overall speed. He is a good one-on-one match-up guy, and does a good job battling blockers vs. the run to make plays...His problem is that he is somewhat a tweener. He is not a big, physical over-powering type DT that can totally stuff the run inside, but he is also not a great speed pass rusher that can move out to the DE. He will have to be a role player on the NFL level, but his attitude and intensity could make him very productive.
