4-7 Round Day 3

Comparison

Yannick Ngakoue Baltimore Ravens

Good frame and excellent length as edge rusher. Carries 250 like it is 230. Lean and strong. Fast-twitch muscles allows for quick get-off at snap. High-level athlete. Flexibility to dip shoulder and explode around edge. Covers ground quickly, and in few steps. Speed is best asset. Can chase plays down from behind. Plays physical and fast. Excellent body control. Can tackle in space. Plays with instinct. Good at point of attack. Can stack and shed. Needs to continue to develop in weight room. Has to work on technique and use more than speed. Continued progress with hand speed important. Multi-year starter at Top 15 program. Day 3 NFL draft potential.
