School: Wisconsin Position: OLB Class: Junior Height: 6–4 Weight: 243 lbs Projected Draft Round: 2–4

Quick Quote:

“He’s more of a blitzer than a pure pass rusher. He uses his power and hand quickness to defeat RBs and TEs but he will get swallowed up by quality OTs. “ — Daniel Jeremiah

Scouting Report:

Very smart, productive, and instinctive outside linebacker. Quickly diagnosis plays and doesn’t get caught up in traffic. Can disengage a blocker quickly and get to the play without hesitation. An old-school type player that defensive coordinators will be lobbying for come draft day.
