2-3 Round Day 2


Jason Strowbridge Miami Dolphins

A fluid, athletic big man that can get after the quarterback. Young for his grade and won’t turn 18 years old until midway through his freshman year of college. Quick first step allows him to fire off the ball and get vertical. Flexibility allows him to bend and run the corner. Does a nice job of getting home and making the play more times than not. Has developed a few go-to pass rushing moves, but still could add a few more to the toolbox, which should happen once he’s studying under a veteran defensive line coach. Understands how to stack and shed, but will eventually need to find some more power if he wants to hold his own against college-sized blockers on a consistent basis. Totaled 13 sacks as a junior and then 12 more as a senior facing top competition every week down in South Florida. Did, however, miss some time due to a few linger injuries, which could be something to keep an eye on down the line. Viewed by some college recruiters as a true edge player at the next level, but could very well end up shifting inside as his 6-foot-4, 240-pound frame is only going to keep filling out. Should emerge as a multi-year starter and potentially an all-conference type of a player for a Top 25 program. NFL upside if everything comes together.
