Bio: Former tight end that moved to the defensive line last season, posting 55 tackles with 14 tackles for loss and 5 sacks. Started every game at tight end as a junior and caught 14 passes for 206 yards with 2 scores.

Pos: Gritty, tough player with a competitive nature. Quick off the snap, plays with forward lean and works to stay low. Wedges his way through blocks, rarely off his feet and gives top effort. Smart and quickly locates the action and finds the ball.

Neg: Lacks size, stymied at the point by a single blocker and not effective using his hands to keep opponents off him. Marginal size/speed.

Analysis: Intensity is his greatest asset and someone who can be looked at on the defensive line or at offensive guard and possibly a practice squad player at the next level.
