Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s effective in pursuit when chasing down backs as a run defender, and Lasater has the athleticism to cover a lot of ground when dropping into coverage.
  • Shows a burst to close. Flashes explosive hitting ability and good lateral and downfield pursuit.
  • He’s an instinctive and active chase-and-tackle 4-3 Will, with the speed to go sideline to sideline. Lasater takes excellent angles. He also has an innate sense for shooting gaps as a run defender.
  • A chase-and-tackle Will prospect, he is instinctive, reading and reacting quickly and showing the ability to absolutely fly around the field.
  • He disrupts plays in the backfield regularly. He also has the agility and pure speed to cover sideline to sideline, moving like a safety and then finishing as a violent and consistent tackler.
  • Lasater has the kind of turn-and-run fluidity to be used in man coverage as well, able to run with tight ends and running backs.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lasater lacks the speed of a chase and- tackle guy. Lasater lacks twitch as a pass rusher and lacks the feet and flexibility to threaten around the edge.
  • Occasionally overruns plays due to aggressive nature. Hesitates when facing running back Blocks while rushing the passer.
  • As a run defender, he’s too much of a grab-and-drag tackler, lacking violence and too frequently allowing running backs to escape.
