Pittsburgh | H: 6004 W: 226 40: 4.75 A: 3238 H: 1058 W: 7878

Three-year starter, Syracuse, NY. First-team All-ACC this past season, second-team in 2021, third-team in 2020. An explosive athlete with great movement skills. Exceptional ability to diagnose blocking schemes, and will fly downhill to fit gaps inside the box, and as a secondary contain versus pass. Shows solid lateral agility to scrape across the offensive line quickly, and will shoot gaps and meet running backs behind the line-of-scrimmage. Shows great pursuit skills to the sideline using great acceleration and change-of-direction skills. Shows proper tackling form in the box, and utilizes the sideline as an extra defender. Will run through contact to finish tackles and limited yards-after-contact. In zone coverage, keeps his head on a swivel and quickly recognizes and picks up threats to his area. Shows the short-area quickness to leverage his zone, and will burst to play the ball in the air. Shows proper speed and acceleration to carry tight end vertical. Shows the man coverage ability to mirror running backs on flare routes and can carry them downfield. Plays with a high motor and makes plays all over the field due to his high effort. Lacks functional strength when engaging with offensive linemen, as he will get stood up immediately without creating push. Struggles to shed and stack blockers due to strength in his upper body and hands. While he is asked to blitz often, he rarely creates an impact in this area. In space, he will leave his feet and lunge, which causes him to miss tackles. Needs to avoid coming in contact with offensive linemen in order to be most effective.

2022 Stats: 94 T, 12 TFL, 7 sacks, 3 PBU, 6 QBH, 2 FF, 1 INT. 6th/7th round.
