I think you're making too big of a deal for his arm length. Sylvester Williams is a first round 3-4 DE prospect and his arm length is the same. Same for Everette Dawkins and he's a 2nd/3rd round pick.

Even Dontari Poe has shorter arm length and many thought he would be a 3-4 DE like Haloti Ngata.

I agree with the small school comparison though. You don't think he'd be a good developmental prospect in the late 3rd or 4th round?
