4-7 Round Day 3

Comparison

Jason Strowbridge Miami Dolphins

Impressive, moldable frame. Has some length to him. Promising lower half. Should be able to eventually get up to 265 pounds or more, if desired. A fluid, athletic big man that lives in opponent’s backfields. Exceptional get off at this stage in his development. Uses quick first step to work his way inside or outside. Flexibility allows him to bend his way around the edge. Does a nice job of getting home and finishing off plays. Long arms help eliminate throwing lanes. Understands how to stack and shed. Short-area lateral quickness helps him wrangle ball carriers behind the line of scrimmage. Will need to keep improving pass-rushing technique, but swift hands already allow him to win his fair share of battles. Must also eventually find some more power. Lined up primarily as a five-technique junior year of high school. Also stood up every now and then. Ended up totaling 13 sacks in just six games. Initial burst suggests that he can be a multi-year contributor for a Power 5 program and possibly an all-conference type of player. Could be used in a variety of different ways along the defensive line. Ceiling might ultimately be the highest as an inside rusher.

Athletic Background

2020: Totaled 13 sacks in six games for a Panthers program that won a tri-county championship. Miami Herald All-Broward first-team selection.

2019: Sun Sentinel All-Broward honorable mention. Helped Dillard go 12-1, win a district title and make regional finals of 6A state playoffs.
