35 1/8
10 1/4


  • Combination of size, length, and foot speed is nearly unparalleled
  • Delivers solid first contact that jolts opponent back and continues to locate ball carriers in the backfield
  • Consistently sheds at the line of scrimmage
  • Envelopes his target with a strong grasp and outstanding closing burst
  • Flashes the complete package, specifically when rushing from the edge on passing downs
  • Quickly learns and implements new techniques


  • Has admitted to a lack of stamina and his fatigue is noticeable after a few plays of rushing the passer
  • Doesn't always chase the play down from the backside, instead staying at the line of scrimmage to knock down the pass
  • Technique is also not always there, specifically on the edge against the run
