Projection

4-7 Round Day 3

Comparison

Devon Kennard Detroit Lions

Excellent frame with length. Can easily play at 240 pounds. Position flexibility to develop into outside linebacker or defensive end in 4-3 or outside linebacker in 3-4. Shuttle is 4.27 seconds. Accelerates well. Gets to top speed within a few steps. Changes direction well. Has good body control. Able to sift through traffic to locate ball carrier. Possesses closing speed. Has athleticism to play in space. Good blitzer in passing situations. Adding upper body strength needed. Work on stack-and-shed technique must continue. Has to show more of a willingness to plug run gaps. Being more consistent with drop depths in passing game needs work. Multi-year starter at Top 15 program. Day 3 NFL draft potential.
