Has the ability to rush the passer and stop the run from the end position ... Prototypical size for the end position along withexponential development will allow for similar success at the next level ... Has plenty of upside and can also be a factor as a coverage player in drop back situations ... Needs to improve strength and instincts to excel as a professional ... Tends to become a non-factor when facing more powerful opponents and double teams ... Very quick first step for a lineman and shows off exceptional pursuit of ball carriers ... Will need time to adapt to thefaster pace of the NFL game ... Could be used as a linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme due to his speed.
