Has performed standing up and could continue on to do that in college or university. Exhibits he can fall into coverage when asked to do that. 3-4 outside linebacker or weakside 4-3 end are most most likely projections. Has to fill in, get more robust and be equipped to anchor in the on the operate, but has superior-conclude athletic capability.
