Player Notes Pros

  • Lean, muscular build perfectly engineered for playing defensive end in 4-3 scheme 

  • Powerful, physical & disciplined run defender, Sets firm edges & processes very well

  • Extremely comfortably stepping down, taking on pullers & squeezing through gaps

  • Pass rushing skill set is elite, fluid release out of his stance with rapid acceleration

  • Works his feet & upper body to draw offensive tackles out of their pass sets

  • Quickly eats up turf with his stride, also knows how to vary his steps to set up his rush

  • Has the flexibility needed to reduce his surface area, understands rush angles

  • Hand work & rush variety is incredible, no shortage of combos & always has a plan

  • Fluid in coverage drops with a clear understanding of his landmarks & spacing

  • Effortless change of direction ability as he easily flows laterally towards the sideline

  • True positional flexibility, can either be a 4-3 DE, 4-3 stacked backer or a 3-4 OLB

  • Very good burst off the LOS & equally effective as a rusher from an up or down position

  • Cerebral rusher with a good football IQ, saves best rushes for obvious passing situations

  • With free release & option of a 2 way go, can implore in/out move, winning on the edge

  • Employs versatile repertoire of moves at constant rates, keeping blockers off balance

  • Production actually increased & exceeded anyone's expectations after Bosa left for NFL

  • Elite prospect who can step into any defensive system & directly in the starting lineup

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Can do a better job with pad level, instances where he pops straight up out of his stance

  • Problem jumping offside due to moving off sound & not sight of ball being snapped

  • There are some struggles of being able to reset the corner prior to the engagement point

  • If he’s dropping in coverage, it’s often easy to pick up based on his stance
