- AProjectionRound 1
- Hand9 ⅞
Strong Points: Excellent size and length. Very good athlete with excellent strength, explosiveness and power. Dominates. The best edge pass rusher in the draft. Has moves and can use his hands. Great closing speed. Strong at the point and quick to shed. Consistent playmaker. Shows he can drop into coverage. Very good pursuit player. Makes things look easy.
Weak Points: Really none unless you want to nitpick, in which case he doesn't have a twin brother
The Way We See It: Fourth-year senior and a three-year starter. Lines up mostly on the right side but has played on the left. Plays both up and down and has experience in coverage. Originally recruited to play linebacker. One of the most dominant pass rushers in this draft. Great get-off, has very good hand use and plays with leverage. Redirects very well. Has the flexibility to get under opponents on a consistent basis. Plays with strength and power and is very explosive. When asked to drop, he gets depth and shows awareness. Can play man. Is scheme versatile and can play in either a 3- or 4-man front. Best as a right end in a 4-3 or outside 'backer in a 3-4. Catches a number of plays from behind. Will line up and play right away. A future Pro Bowl player -- perhaps very early in his career -- he could very well be the first overall pick in the draft.
