Scouting Report/Player Notes
Very good looking defensive end/outside linebacker prospect who has really developed in terms of his size over the last four years. Great overall size and length for a defensive line prospect who was a first team All-Pac 12 performer as a junior with 13 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. Really good pursuit and play recognition skills, and a great overall athlete who also participates on special teams. Came to Oregon as a wide receiver/tight end and has really good natural athletic skills. Gets upfield in a hurry, and while he is still transitioning to the defensive side of the ball, he has made great strides and could be primed to be one of the best defensive players in the country. He has the length to really cause problems for opposing offensive linemen and make plays consistently behind the line of scrimmage. Really does a good job of working upfield and never gives up on a play.
