 How He Fits

Butcher possesses a solid frame with above average bulk, though he has room to add more in college. He gets upfield quickly and is a disruptive force behind the line of scrimmage. A high-effort prospect, Butcher is the type of player Butch Jones loves. He’s talented yet also works hard to maximize that talent. He’s disciplined against the run and demonstrates a quick first step when rushing the passer. Butcher also has the ability to use his strength to beat linemen to the inside. Tennessee needs more playmakers along the defensive front and Butcher will get a chance to prove he can fill that role early in his career.
