That's great. As a NT.
He's a shade under 6'2" and doesn't have long arms. He's not a defensive end by any stretch in any system.
And the Senior Bowl always favors the defensive linemen - in the one on ones and the game itself. Add to that, he's coming out of a small school. His adjustment period to the NFL is going to be a long, slow, steep climb unless he's a prodigy level guy like Jared Allen.
