Pos: 
Explosive pass-rushing defensive end with terrific size, growth potential and upside. Fires off the snap with an explosive first step, quickly changes direction and shows speed to every area of the field. Easily alters his angle of attack, displays outstanding movement skills and gets a lot of force going up the field. Disruptive edge rusher who shows speed off the corner and a closing burst. Fast in lateral pursuit, chases the action hard and plays low to the ground with excellent pad level. Effective out of a three-point stance and occasionally when lined up over tackle.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk and gets easily outpositioned from the action by blocks. Can be a liability against the run. Struggled with a shoulder injury in 2018.
Analysis: 
Gary is a tremendous defensive end prospect who will have opportunities in certain 3-4 alignments. He's fast, athletic and intense and should only improve as he physically matures.
