I would prefer Cooper, Barr and maybe Richardson.
He's very mobile and quick for a 300+ lb'r, and UNC does mix it up between a 4-3 and 3-4. From what I've seen, he plays some DE in the 3-4 lineups. Sometimes NT. They move him around. High motor.
One thing to note about him is he'll be an old rookie. Would turn 25 I think sometime during rookie year season. Plays like a 1st rounder but I'd never give an older rookie a slot higher then mid-2nd round.
I agree with you tho - Cooper or Barr would be my picks if going BPA.
