Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Vince Biegel Los Angeles Chargers

Taller framed linebacker with long arms. Lean right now, but should easily add weight. Very competitive kid. Plays hard and has played up with older competition since an early age. Athletic, comfortable in space and changes directions fluidly. Aggressive, attacks downhill and is an explosive tackler. Still can improve on timed speed, but has good play speed. Has to still get stronger and fill out his frame as well. Given his frame and body type, developing into an EDGE player is not out of the question, but he can project as a SAM in a 4-3 or an outside pass rusher in a 3-4 as well. His size and tools allow him to project to multiple roles and schemes. If he can improve on testing numbers, he would have a chance to hear his named called fairly early in the NFL draft when that time comes.

Athletic Background

2019: Helped West Lafayette to a 9-3 record and Indiana 3A sectional championship round as a junior.
