—Athletic, strong pass-rusher with NFL bloodlines after his brother Joey and father John were both first-round draft picks.
—Refined rusher who can beat tackles with crossface quickness, powerful hands and a full toolbox of moves; is a plug-and-play starter who comes into the league as a finished product.
—Uses his hands like an All-Pro; has a developed shoulder dip and will swat away the hands of blockers.
—Has enough power and length to be able to kick down and possibly play 3-technique as a pass-rusher in speed packages on the defensive line.
—Smart on the field with a quick locator and the ability to read and react fast.
—Knows how to read blockers and react to what they do as blockers; is quick off the snap and can countermove the block on the fly.
—Injured twice in his last four seasons of football: ACL injury in senior year of high school and core muscle injury in 2018.
—Doesn't have elite twitch coming out of his stance; can be a little tight through his hips.
—Can shut down and make too many business decisions when the ball goes away from his side.
