TRAITS BREAKDOWN


SIZE/PHYSICAL TRAITS (5/5)

  • Ideal size for a 4-3 defensive end
  • Ideal length (34″ arms)

SNAP EXPLOSION (17/20)

  • Pretty good ball get-off and first-step quickness
  • Seems to anticipate the snap count fairly well
  • Usually the first player to move off of the snap

RUN DEFENSE (17/20)

  • Sets the edge consistently
  • Good at stacking blockers and holding his ground
  • Generally sheds well, but can struggle to defend runs directly at him from time to time (gets washed out of plays or sealed occasionally because of high pad level)

FLEXIBILITY (12/15)

  • Solid flexibility around the edge
  • Can bend at relatively tight angles to flatten his path to the quarterback

POWER (13.5/15)

  • Capable of collapsing a pocket with bull rush
  • Can manhandle offensive lineman with power moves (hump, long arm, bull-rush)

TECHNIQUE (13.5/15)

  • Does a good job of stacking blocks vs. the run — knows how to use arms and knows where to place hands to control blockers
  • Can be slow to deploy initial pass-rush move at times
  • Shows ability to sequence pass-rush moves (club/rip, stutter-step/swim)
  • Flashes one-hand stab + swipe move
  • Has a nice inside swim counter-move
  • Pad level can get a little high from time to time

MOTOR (5/5)

  • Relentless pursuit defender
  • Consistently hustles to the ball when play gets to the side of him or behind him

CLOSING SPEED (4/5)

  • Solid closing speed to finish plays in the backfield and pursue to the edge

VERDICT


NFL COMPARISON: Everson Griffen

GRADE: 87.00/100.00 — (EARLY-MID) 1ST ROUND — Good player with Pro Bowl potential
