Comparison

Gregory Rousseau Buffalo Bills

Football newbie with immense talent and natural tools. Tall and very long with lean, athletic frame ready to add significant mass in college, if desired. Scheme-versatile as a hybrid edge defender or four-man end. Springy basketball player whose first year of football came as senior in 2019. However, surprisingly looks the aggressor on the field and brings the fight to opponent, an intriguing trait for being new to the gridiron. Explosive edge rusher with strong production as a senior. Flashes quick get-off and impressive pursuit speed. Dangerous in backside pursuit. Bends well for his height/length and will become dangerous arc-runner off the edge. Raw physically and technically. Must continue to add bulk and strengthen to maximize frame, as well as stand up to stronger blockers, particularly in the run game. Will need to expand move set as pass-rusher. High-ceiling edge defender with outstanding physical tools that project to high-major level and long-term NFL Draft potential.
