Scout.com Analysis 

Bimage is one of those guys who will wreck shop as a hybrid DE/OLB. He already has experience playing with his hand in the dirt and standing up. One of the first things that jumps out on his tape is his explosion. He is quick with the first step and that presses the actions. He is a solid tackler due to the fact that he delivers hits with a lot of force and violence. - Greg Powers, Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst
