BillsFans: Would you draft me at #3 ??????

 

Positives:

I look the part with an athletic build,long arms and big hands. I have the speed, agility and movement skills of a linebacker. Flash dominant, explosive first step. Has loose shoulder to dip and bend the corner with speed and finishing burst. Shoots through the gap on stunts. Moves very well laterally and can flatten down the line and chase. Able to redirect and accelerate. Drop into zone with ease.

Negatives:

Does not provide enough resistance defending the run. Weak at the point of attack. Plays too tall and does not constrict running lanes. Young pass rusher lacking nuance---raw instincts and awareness and is not yet a great finisher. Not physical. Needs to hone a more diverse arsenal of moves and counter--too reliant on speed and quickness. Lacks elite flexibility and burst at the top of his rush. Does not feel pressure or understand blocking schemes. Sack numbers are inflated--too much production is unblocked,against over matched tight ends or vs. inferior competition. Is a bit of a country bumpkin and could endure an adjustment period adapting to the bright lights. Medical history requires scrutiny and could affect draft status.

 

Summary:

A raw, nearly one-dimensional open-side rusher with enticing athleticism, edge burst and disruptive potential. That said, his bust factor is significant given his lack of polish, instincts and physicality vs. the run. Flash player who is not a natural sack artist and needs to learn to translate measurables and weight-room numbers to the field. Has the length and pass-rush potential to be groomed as a rush linebacker. Still, some teams worry that his lack of physicality will relegate him to a pass-rush specialist role.
