Can contribute on special teams.

Negatives: Is not the most physically gifted athlete... Does not have much of an arsenal... Average closing speed... Tweener, struggles in coverage and would be a project as a 3-4 OLB... Needs to add an additional 8-12 pounds of bulk to play defensive end... Looks more comfortable rushing the quarterback than dropping into coverage... A bit of a surprise early entrant though he was an academic senior and probably wouldn't have improved his stock by more than a round by staying in school... Pulled hamstring during first 40-yard dash attempt at pro day.
