Size and School
Ht.6-4 Wt. 263LBS Washington
He has good size and is extremely athletic, in fact the most athletic DE in the draft. He also has very good production, but his total tackles did decrease during his senior year. He looks fast and strong on tape and can lay a hard hit. He tackles very well in general. I would love to have him on the Eagles. He is moving up the draft boards, which is annoying because I discovered him when he was projected to go in the 6th round. He will more likely go in the 4th now. We need to keep building depth on the D line and keep working to get an eventual super star. 4/23 – I’m glad that we drafted him because I think that he is going to be really good. We might have been able to get him a little later, but at least we got him. I wonder if we will move him or Brandon Graham to linebacker. 4/28 I’ve been watching more video on this kid and I just have to reiterate how good he is. He gets off of blocks almost instantly using his hands to punch his man to the side, by running outside of OTs or by spinning. He can play multiple positions including LB, DT and DE. He is a great wrap up tackler and has very good change of direction ability. I watched him stay on the ball during fake pitches twice and make a great plays. He is going to be a starter at some point for the Eagles. He was a great pick up and will harass the QBs of the NFC East all day long. I would love to see him put on 10 lbs and play inside on third down while Brandon Graham DE and Trent Cole line up outside. We are going to get pressure with just our front 4 this year for a change.
