Scouting Report
Assets: A tremendous pass rusher with speed to the corner and some inside moves. Pursues very well on plays away from him. A unique athlete who can play low despite a 6-7 frame. Explodes out of his stance, yet still holds his ground against the run.
Flaws: Somewhat streaky and his game-to-game motor is questionable; seems to turn his A-game on and off. Can get overaggressive in the pass rush and taken out of the play by a less-talented blocker.
Career Potential: Veteran edge rusher and possible future Hall-of-Famer.
