SCOUTING REPORT
Unique combination of size, speed, strength and athleticism. His motor never stops. Is always in the backfield disrupting plays. Good against pass and run. Needs to improve lateral quickness and he struggles to drop into coverage. Ran a 4.72 at the combine.
--Mark Olsen

He can be moved around, and sets the edge very well. Has a good burst off the snap and good closing speed. Has coachable play, and is only 20 years old with time to develop further. He has slow hips and does not drop well. Cant play in the 3-4 at old; needs to improve is agility.
--Matt Marino
