Arnold Ebiketie DE Penn State Scouting Report

Position rank: 12
40-yard dash time: 4.71-seconds
Height: 6-3, Weight: 256 lbs
Strengths
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • Easily gains inside leverage by shooting gaps.
  • Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
  • Has the pursuit skills to stay in the action. Anticipates the snap. Country strong and very physical; seeks contact.
  • Offers some versatility, rushing from a two-and three-point stance with the playing speed to stand up in space. Flashes strength as a bull rusher and his energy doesn't plateau.
Weaknesses
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
  • Not a natural bender and lacks fluid change-of-direction ability. Plays with inconsistent pad level and is often knocked backward off the snap.
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
