Positives: He's very athletic. He has long arms and excellent speed around the edges. He has good acceleration off the ball and has the ability to collapse the pocket. He plays the run well and can make plays in the backfield. He's a hard worker who could play defensive end in a 4-3 defense or as a outside linebacker in the 3-4. He's been compared to Julius Peppers and Mario Williams.
Negatives: Not a lot of strength, relies heavily on his speed. Has trouble getting off blocks. Character concerns after he missed the entire 2010 season for accepting gifts from an agent. He had a benign tumor removed from his brain when he was in high school.
