Almost always draws a double team. Plays with good core strength and balance. Runs to finish the play. Has two gap ability. Gets a vertical push with his two-arm extension. Will provide depth and fit into a rotation on Sundays. 2015 stats: 31 T, 5.5 TFL, 2 sacks, 1 PBU, 1 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.08, right 2.35. OSR:6/28. Sixth/seventh round.
