Scouting Report
Raw, but has a solid foundation to build on. Has a good burst around the edge, a great frame, and decent quickness that will only improve with time. He has the tools, now he just needs to learn how to use them.

Immediate Projection
It would be a bit of a surprise if Slade made it onto the field this year given the pass rushers that will be ahead of him. With how raw he is, a redshirt year would benefit everybody. He does have some things that can't be taught, however, so perhaps those skills will find him playing earlier than expected.
