Big and powerful - has the ability to bury offensive lineman. Has a nice array of pass rushing moves. Durable and mature - played in every game in college and is 24 years old. Has a good initial first step and burst but lacks ideal speed. May struggle if he's asked to move to OLB in a 3-4 defense and needs to drop into coverage.
--Mark Olsen

Has a nice burst for a first step, can get off the line quick with his lanky build, changes direction well with speed, gets upfield and can use his lateral quickness to get around linemen. Has a tough time if jammed up, does not have the strength to bull rush linemen over, has a tendency to get too high off the snap.
