Scouting Report
A truly explosive powerhouse in the middle of the D-line. Excels at slipping the grips of blockers and accelerating into the backfield. A rare athlete for a D-tackle, and incredibly strong for his size. Manhandles most opponents off the snap. Has the speed to play the end spot as a pro. Lacks ideal size for an interior defensive lineman. While good at getting his hands up he isn't a towering pass disruptor at the line. Sometimes lets his excellent intensity overflow into unnecessary penalties.
Long Range Potential: All-Pro pass-rushing defensive lineman.
