6026, 255, 4.82

Notes: From Jefferson Hills, PA. Began his college career as a linebacker (wore number 59), switched to tight end (wore 44) as a sophomore, before settling at defensive end in 2016. Took ballet and studied Ju-jitsu coming into the 2017 season to improve his body control and agility. Redshirted in 2014. Appeared in 6 games, making 2 tackles on special teams, in 2015. Played in all 13 games, started 2, at defensive end and recorded 35 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 5 sacks and 1 FF in 2016. Starting DE, posting 79 tackles, 18 TFL, 8 sacks, 2 FF and 2 FR in 2017.

Positives: Non-stop motor. Very active. Plays with consistently high level of intensity. Never lets up. Relentless. Disruptive play-maker. Good ball awareness. Plays within the scheme. Quick off the ball and can win off the edge. Has an inside move. Plays fast. Hustles in pursuit. Stays on his feet and chases down the line. Uses his hands effectively to disengage from blockers.

Negatives: Less-than-ideal size and bulk. Lacks great base strength or overpowering leverage and can be stale-mated by good tackles.

Summary: Solid edge-defender prospect.
