Kyran’s got a lot of potential. He has a pretty large frame that looks like it’ll support more weight. He’s super high motor, and has a nose for the ball. He could use a little more variety in his rush moves, but I get the feeling he wasn't tested athletically all of the time. In some of his highlights, they have him standing up at linebacker. I don’t know what to make of that. Not sure if that is a plan of the Missouri staff or not, but he does show some explosion and quick twitch, reactionary skills that are required to play linebacker.

Overall, he has really impressive highlights and raw abilities, but highlights show just a portion of the story.
