Scouting Report
Assets: Super-aggressive off the snap and can be a terror as a pass rusher. Has big, strong hands and uses them exceptionally well: stacks and sheds blockers against the run, and can manhandle and re-direct some offensive tackles. Has enough athleticism and size to start at either outside linebacker or end. Also a hard hitter and high-energy player whose dad played in the NFL.
Flaws: Can get over-aggressive and over-focused, leading to wrong guesses, some missed plays, and penalties. While very good dropping back in pass coverage and getting his hands in passing lanes, he's not an instinctive reactor in space. Quicker than he is fast, and is more aggressive than explosive.
Career Potential: Hard-driving, star defensive end / outside linebacker.
