Scouting Report
Physically huge yet also highly mobile: brings an elite mix of raw power and solid movement skills. Reads plays well and then goes about taking down ball-carriers. Can pressure the pocket and be a sacks factor. A one-dimensional defender. A slow reactor at times and allows some plays to unfold in the run game. Doesn't drop back to help out much in coverage.
Long Range Potential: Above average defensive lineman.
