Comparison

Chris Wormley Pittsburgh Steelers

Big-bodied defensive lineman with potential to fit multiple positions depending on scheme. Broad-shouldered and possesses terrific height. College-ready size with frame space to easily get north of 300 pounds with good weight. Has predominantly played four-man end, but likely best fits four-man tackle or odd-front end in college. Flashes impressive quickness off the ball relative to size. Solid tackler who wraps and drives. Shows noticeable close-quarters power on tape. Active defender with a high motor. Engaged and aware vs. the run. Athletic enough to track down plays from behind in backside situations. Does a great job minding pad level and playing with leverage. Shows a promising inside spin move, but will need to expand pass-rushing repertoire. Can improve arm extension and consistency with hands, in both placement and violence. Athletic build for his size, but a bit top-heavy. Power 5 starter and potential all-conference player who should hear his name called in the NFL draft.

Athletic Background

2018: Was a first-team all-district selection as a junior....2017: Played his sophomore season at Houston Spring Woods
