Projection: 1st Round
Last Updated: January 29th, 2011
Strengths: Fantastic size and bulk – Incredibly quick first step – Penetrates into backfield with ease – Finishes plays well – Good tackler – Plays with a mean streak – Uses hands effectively – Great bull rush.
Weaknesses: Will get some 15-yarders in the NFL – Only has one year of production – At times eschews his responsibilities to go after the QB.
