Two-year starter named Third Team All-MAC in 2016 after posting 33 tackles (7.5 for loss) and six sacks. Had 13.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks through three seasons with the Bobcats.
Fierce defensive tackle who gets the most from his ability. Explosive, fires off the snap and flashes power. Outstanding hand technician who displays a variety of moves as well as a good change direction. Chases outside the box to make plays laterally, resilient and fights through the whistle. Intense but also plays smart football.
Lacks bulk and controlled by a single blocker. More of a first step lineman and easily disrupted from his angle of attack by the initial block.
Sayles is an overachiever that was a disruptive force on the college field. He offers growth potential and possibilities as a three technique tackle.
