What the German media says via Google Translate: “Berlin is the defensive end has, with its 125 kilo one main purpose: flat make enemies!”
What he says about himself: From that same article…
The sooner I am taken, the better. Is oriented around the content. It is therefore I do not care, at which club I play. I can make you beautiful to me everywhere.
What scouts are saying:
Where he will go: Nobody knows. Coming into the season he was a potential first rounder. At some point he became a legitimate contender for the top-three. Since then he underwhelmed at the combine, and nobody can seem to agree on anything about him. Some list his motor as a pro, others as a con. Some say his length in an asset, others believe his lack of length will be a hindrance. He could easily go top-15, or slip into the latter parts of the first round. Nobody would be terribly surprised by either outcome. No matter what happens Mel Kiper will be right.
Immediate impact: Tough to say. He’s only played organized football since he was 15, but given his position he could start right away.
Down the road: After careful examination and lots of film study I am betting that he sucks.
