Good gamble, he was the #3 recruit in the country in 2018.

He does show some speed around the edge, but that’s about it. Still nice quality to have for a 5th rounder

Very quick off the ball. He has good bend to get by the pass blocker. He figures to get some QB pressures if he sees the field. He does not finish as well as he needs to close. He’s weak against the run and with short arms he has real trouble holding the edge. Finally he was often injured. Seems a weak choice despite athletic numbers.

What sticks out to me (at least in highlights) is that he is a very good athlete and doesn't give up plays. Made multiple great plays on 2nd and 3rd efforts.
