Not a college football obsessive but here’s my assessment:
1) his opting out made him a massive scouting risk. I think the highest he’ll go is #15 and more likely in the 20s.
2) not a quick twitch type. A pro body, very smooth, but his quickness doesn’t jump off the screen at me.
3) many of his sacks came from a 3-point stance playing inside and beating the RG. That means to me the Hurricane coaches needed to scheme to create a mismatch, rather than just play him in an edge role and wreak havoc.
4) on the other hand, a talented tackler. In fact, watching him I was unenthused by him as a pass rusher but thought he was intriguing as a standard LB. He has the chance to be a cornerstone versatile LB who gets some sacks but is not a pass rush specialist.
What do you think of Rousseau? (I don’t think he fits with the Giants plans, btw, so this is more a general eval. )
