Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Tougher between the tackles than many expect. Fluid and quick drop into zone, covers enough ground to be Tampa-2 "MIKE" and knows where the markers are.
  • Reads the quarterback to anticipate and is a candidate to play outside.
  • A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
  • Pool can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level.
  • Pool shows good quickness off the line of scrimmage and flashes the violent hands to win around the edge.
  • A chase-and-tackle Will prospect, Pool is instinctive, reading and reacting quickly and showing the ability to absolutely fly around the field.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks functional strength in the pass rush, struggling to disengage and too easily pushed past the pocket.
  • Pool is on the small side, and his frame is pretty much maxed out. Despite his effort and intensity, he’ll simply get swallowed up at times.
  • He’ll get pushed around at the point of attack.
