Recommended Posts

Hate when I have to google our new players lol

From patriots website 

Strengths: Four-year starter. …Quick feet with natural movement skills. … Flexible bender with a good punch to stun defenders. …Good flexibility and recovery athleticism. …Maintains good pad level moving to second level. … Smart, sorts out defenders well. …Team captain in final season.

Weaknesses: Torn ACL in 2018 required his second red shirt season. … Needs to improve overall strength to deal with NFL defensive lineman. … Could require shift inside to guard. …Will be 25-yead-old rookie. …

Personal: Team captain during senior season, also earning All-ACC Academic team in three seasons and third team All-ACC honors as both a grad student and junior. …Father and two uncles played basketball at Villanova. …Was three-time All-Interstate Athletic Conference pick in high school though he did not play football until high school. ...Three-star recruit initially committed to Rutgers. …Played the trumpet in high school jazz band.

Comparable NFL player: Korey Cunningham, a good athlete with the requisite movement skills but who needs to develop their strength to the deal with the array of speed and strength of NFL defensive ends.
