Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Player shows impressive burst and enough quickness to occasionally threaten the edge as a pass rusher.
  • Player has an excellent motor and shows the stamina to last deep into the fourth quarter.
  • He’s a high-effort pass rusher who shows good initial quickness and the ability to beat blockers to the inside.
  • Combines excellent power with initial quickness, but one of his best attributes are his violent hands, which Player uses with impressive precision.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Player remains a bit raw, as Player is inconsistent with his hand use and lacks violence in his hands
  • As a pass rusher, his hand use is inconsistent. He’s short on counter moves in the pass rush.
  • Player is on the short side, and he too often relies on his ability to overpower blockers rather than developing a repertoire of pass-rush moves.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
