6046, 265, 4.72


Notes: From Homestead, FL. Saw action in all 13 games with 2 starts as a true freshman, recorded 32 tackles, 11.5 tackles-for-loss, 8.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 2 fumble recoveries in 2016. Played in all 13 games and made 12 starts, had 59 tackles, 11.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 PBU and 1 FF in 2017. Started 12 of 13 games at right defensive end, notched 47 tackles, 14.5 TFL, 9 sacks, 4 PBU and 2 FF in 2018.

Positives: Nice length and explosiveness off the edge. Excellent pass-rush skills. Can win around the corner with speed. Gets upfield but can also work back inside. Converts speed into power and can create separation from blockers with his arms. Doesn’t stay blocked against the run. Locates the ball well. Fine speed in pursuit.

Negatives: Lacks outstanding bulk and base strength at the point of attack. Still developing hand use, technique and ability to string together multiple moves.

Summary: Has all the traits you look for in a top-end edge rusher.
