Bio: 
Junior-college transfer whose numbers tailed off in 2017, when he made 16 tackles. Posted 58 tackles (nine for loss) and two sacks as a sophomore. Made nine tackles with a half-sack in his first season with Louisville after transferring from Pearl River Community College in 2015.
Pos: 
Relatively athletic defensive line prospect coming off a disappointing campaign. Moves well on his feet, plays with proper pad level and fights hard throughout the action. Resilient, shows the ability to bend off the edge and does a solid job as a pass rusher. Plays with great quickness.
Neg: 
Struggles getting off blocks once engaged at the point. Must improve his hand use.
Analysis: 
After a promising junior campaign, Bailey was pretty much a non-factor in 2017. He possesses the size and athleticism to line up as a tackle in a four-man front or even a two-gap end in a 3-4, but he must quickly get his game back on track.
