My comp is Lawrence Taylor. This guy on one side and Mason Thomas, who I also comp to Lawrence Taylor, on the other edge. I haven’t watched Nyjalik Kelly yet, but will provide the comp once my eval is complete.
Said the same thing. With his long frame, he'll be 260 in no time with absolutely no detriment to his athleticism. He's going to be a scary sight for QB's when he's flying off the edge and they have to look up at him barreling down on them.Kid is going to be 250+ in a year and will be a menace. Huge get, effects the passer in so many ways other than pure sacks and someone we needed desperately. Him and Kelly are as good as it gets for an edge pair in a class.
Read he runs 4.61 rn which is crazy he may break 4.5 when he get stronger and more explosive. GREAT PULLSame I posted in the commitment thread.
2:50 on the raiders stadium!!!! He is the backside DE making the play on the playside short of the first down!! I like that
Another thing is that this kid has stopping power on run plays. His reading of the run was really impressive.
When he tackles ball Carrie’s go down. There’s not a lot of Jersey tackling going on here.
The tipped balls are just more icing on the cake. That 6’6 frame I’m certain he will bat a few passes that lead to INTs here at Miami as well.
Pretty excited watching that tape.
Edit. The kid has some closing speed as well. Don’t know what the hell he runs but looks like he gets there in a hurry on field. Watch the swing pass turn to a TFL. The closing speed he has on that is exceptional
