Scouting Report
Aggressive and strong coming off the edge. Uses his long arms and powerful upper body to handle blockers and is tenacious and crafty getting past them into the backfield. Hustles throughout the play and makes a lot of tackles adjusting in space. Not very fast or fluid and can struggle against good technicians who can get a lock on him. Could do much more in pass protection, or at least getting his arms up in passing lanes. Can be a bit inconsistent in terms of production, game-to-game.
Long Range Potential: Powerful edge rusher and outside linebacker.
