I like him as player, but I don't think he the sudden edge speed to turn the corner to play DE in the NFL. Though I will admit I was surprised he had 7.69 in the 3 cone drill, which is really good for a guy his size, it a lot slower then 7.30 that Werner ran or Datone Jones's (UCLA DE) 7.32. 40 times for DL don't mean much it about the 3 cone drill and the 20 yard shuttle.
Edit: Just for comparison Von Miller ran 6.70 3 cone drill
