What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2023 NFL Draft?
What makes me a top prospect is my versatility and knowledge of the game. I can play inside and outside the box as well as blitz between the tackles or rush off the edge. I can fit in either zone or man schemes, I’ve played and learned a lot of different defenses.
