He's more instinctive than explosive. He doesn't have a blazing first step and he's not very strong at the point of attack and gets swallowed if a OT or OG gets him locked.
He's almost an exact replica of former TCU All-American and current Indy Colt Jerry Hughes. A very good player, but not a dominant one.
Add to it, the degenerative neck injury that the USC doctors wouldn't clear him of, and that's a guy that I wouldn't be spending a first round pick on.
