Scouting Report
Has speed, power, a great wingspan and a great first move off the edge. Is also very active and disruptive with his hands, causing fumbles and missed passes. Has enough size to play a classic end role but may be best as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 setup. Tends to be overly aggressive at times. As a linebacker, needs to show more in pass coverage (can be a bit slow to react, doesn't read the action as well as he should and be a little more focused). As a defensive end, can benefit from more explosiveness off the line.
Long Range Potential: Quality linebacker.
