Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 67 tackles (eight for loss) with seven sacks and one forced fumble as a junior. Recorded 28 tackles and one sack in 2016. Started two games as a true freshman and posted 32 tackles (5.5 for loss) and one sack.
Pos: 
Athletic defensive lineman with a versatile game. Explosive, plays with good lean and displays himself as a solid pass rusher. Fluidly moves in every direction, smoothly collapses laterally down the line of scrimmage and shows ability in pursuit. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt, tough to knock off his feet and fights with his hands throughout the action. Gets a lot of momentum going and possesses a solid closing burst.
Neg: 
Lacks strength and power and cannot get off blocks once engaged.
Analysis: 
Speaks was rarely mentioned in scouting circles but has the size, skill and athleticism to line up as a three-technique tackle or two-gap end if he improves his playing strength. He’s a rotational lineman who should be very productive out of the gate.
