He left Oklahoma early as a redshirt sophomore so he will need to be developed, but has the type of talent to be a definite starter. Phillips is huge and moves very well for his size. He excels in pass rush as he has a number of moves to beat the offensive lineman. I believe he is scheme diverse at the next level in either a 3-4 or 4-3 defense. One area that he needs to improve on as a nose tackle is his ability to hold up against offensive lineman in the run game. At his size he sometimes gets moved when he shouldn’t. Phillips is kind of a boom or bust prospect, as he shows very rare traits for his size.
