6036, 265, 4.78


Notes: From Thomasville, GA. Played in 13 games as a true freshman in 2015, recording 22 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Missed first six games of 2016 with foot injury, then returned to make 12 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Started at LDE and played in all 14 games in 2017, posting 58 tackles, 15.5 TFL, 8.5 sacks, 2 PBU and 2 FF.

Positives: Strong, flexible and athletic. Can get upfield and rush the passer. Effective off the edge and looping inside. Explosive and disruptive. Quick first step. Closes well and plays with passion. Makes tackles in pursuit. Plays with discipline. Can stack and shed at the point of attack.

Negatives: Needs continued technique work with hands in taking on and disengaging from blockers. A bit mechanical in stringing multiple moves together.

Summary: First-round talent and nice fit as an anchor end in a four-man front.
