Scouting Report
A fantastic athlete who also brings uncommon focus and intensity. Is a regular threat to make plays all over the field. He's a terror off the edge, yet also has the fluid footwork and quickness to drop back and cover tight ends (and shows great hands for interceptions). Not as efficient against the run as he is against the pass. Doesn't have ideal size of a pass-rushing end; may be a better fit at linebacker. Needs to do a better effort as a chaser in pursuit. A multi-purpose defender who needs to find his niche.
Long Range Potential: Starting outside linebacker / defensive end, with star tools.
