3. NFL.com scouting report: Takes to coaching and is a student of the game. Has keen sense of timing in his operation. Feet and hands in constant state of harmony. Hands both proactive and reactive playing run or pass. Advanced rush approach too much for his level of competition. Logs sacks game after game and doesn't pad stats in just one or two games. Gets off snap quickly to leverage his rush. Potent two-hand swipe to soften the edge. Disguises inside counter without slowing. Wicked spin counter could become signature move. Surprising pop in his punch to jolt and separate. Strong, sudden hands to discard blocking tight ends.
