Scouting Report
Assets: Phenomenally gifted as a sack artist, with a true knack for getting into the backfield and after the QB. Also strong as a run-stopper. Highly athletic, very fast, and blessed with a great rangy frame. His ability to see plays as they happen and make adjustments in space may be his best quality.
Flaws: Needs to put some bulk on his frame and keep working on his overall technique, especially his anticipation and shiftiness off the snap. Will also miss some tackles at times. Has been in some off-field trouble.
Career Potential: Excellent edge rusher with major issues.
