What scouts are saying:

Where he’ll go: I’ve seen him going to New Orleans in multiple mocks, even though he seems to project as a 3-4 linebacker rather than a 4-3 end. But he is local, and that’s what front offices really care about.

OK, so that explains all of those mock drafts. I am stupid.

Immediate impact: An situational pass rusher.

Down the road: An every down player, if things go right.
