Lindy scout's comment about getting hands up in the passing lanes made my heart melt - Gollin

"The kind of player most coaches will want to have on their team..Will contribute right away...."Very productive...played inside and outside...Explosive first step...very good hand usage..might not have the speed required for playing outside..Fun guy to watch on tape...Can be a 4-3 three-tech or a 3-4 five-tech... - PFW

Emerged as breakout star in 2017...High floor (due to size, strength and lunchpail demeanor) but has a low athletic ceiling in other aspects of game (made plain when he went up vs elite blockers during Senior Bowl week)..."Safe" second round prospect...Broad-shouldered, "country strong", thick lower half...good lateral agility...Big and strong enough to handle 2-gap respomsibility...Reads the eyes of the QB and gets his hands up to block passing lanes...Not quick twitch...stiff in midsection...needs wide arc to scrape the corner - Lindy's

Big, powerful and extremely productive at BC...Good initial burst at snap with lower body power, strong hands and balance to control blockers in run game...Rarely moved in run game...Relentless motor and outstanding effort...not an edge burner...can play a large number of snaps without wearing down...stiff hipped - lacks lateral skills...temperment, technique and ability to stop the run give him a high floor...Solid but not a game changer...suitable for 3-technique as a pass rusher - Athlon

You put on the tape of this kid, every single play he plays hard, plays tough, plays physical. He plays the run hard. Might not ever go to a Pro Bowl, but you stick him in there and he's going to play for seven, eight or nine years. - CBS
