Draft Prospect Outlook:
Good-size, adequate strength for the defensive tackle spot. Played nose often at Minnesota. Relied on a quick first step to win. Doesn't have many pass-rushing moves. High-motor player who will make some plays scraping down the line. Limited due to his average athleticism and lack of refinement with his hands.
