Three-year starter, Atlanta, GA. Third-team All-ACC this past season. Typically aligned on the edge in a wide nine and can bump inside on heavy passing downs. His long frame and athletic profile will make him a commodity. Makes great ground in his initial steps off the line-of-scrimmage. Will set the edge effectively with solid functional strength. Can disengage from blocks with active, strong hands and work upfield with quick feet to make tackles when called upon. Can change direction in the open field quickly with proper balance, agility, and quick feet, which makes him effective in stunts. Will shoot gaps inside and uses strength, good hand usage, and a violet rip to squeeze through to the backfield. Shows a variety of ways to win in pass rush using both speed and power. Possesses great closing speed to finish on the quarterback rapidly. Shows proper tackling form to wrap up and take ball carriers to the ground. Shows effort and desire to make an impact in pursuit, and will chase ball carriers downfield. Needs to work on lowering his pad level as he will get washed out of the play versus zone run schemes. Fringe anchor and can be driven off the ball versus base blocks. Shows the lack of a counter when his initial pass rush move does not work. He struggles to corner off the edge due to a lack of bend. Struggles to drive offensive linemen into the backfield as he struggles to play low and win leverage. High upside as a pass rusher could push him higher than expected.

2022 Stats: 37 T, 14 TFL, 9 sacks, 2 PBU, 4 QBH. Edge speed:left 1.98, right 1.97. OSR:4/43. 4th/5th round.
