I think his smallish size for a DE in a non cover 2 or 3-4 defense doesn't help him. He's 6'3 1/2" but he weighs in at only about 255 lbs. He doesn't have that elite closing speed and he's not particularly strong. He could eventually become a solid pro but I doubt he ever records a 8-10 sack season and for that reason really isn't a top 10 type selection in most drafts let alone one of this caliber.
This draft has the makings of one of the best drafts ever, if everyone comes out that is expected too. I predict that even a few undrafted FA's become good players in the NFL. There will likely be a lot of movement for extra picks in this one.
