Bio: 
First-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Sun Belt and made 24 tackles (six for loss) in 2017. Recorded 34 tackles (eight for loss) and 0.5 sacks as a junior. Redshirted the 2015 season after transferring from Alabama.
Pos: 
Wide-bodied defensive tackle prospect who shows terrific athleticism. Fires off the snap with a quick first step, moves well for a big man and works his hands throughout the action. Plays with consistent knee bend and proper leverage and shows decent agility. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt and moves well laterally in pursuit of the play.
Neg: 
Average strength for a big defender. Consistently controlled at the point. Displays limited power in his base and often gets thrown to the ground by blockers.
Analysis: 
Liner possesses the size of a two-gap lineman but plays with the athleticism of a one-gap defender. He entered the season as a legitimate fifth-round choice and has great upside but must turn his size into next-level power.
