DeMarvion Overshown LB Texas Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Can attack the edge with speed and has the flexibility to dip low and under the tackle's reach.
  • Ferocious against the run and very good in coverage, is extremely versatile. Despite his build, he holds up well in traffic and makes a lot of plays by engaging a block, shedding, and pursuing.
  • 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.
  • Best attribute. Extreme quickness off the edge, has the flexibility to turn the corner.
  • Good athlete. Shows a natural feel for pass rushing. Very good lateral agility to shake pass blockers.
  • Handles misdirection well with quick change-of-direction ability. Comes downhill quickly against the run when he has an open lane.
  • He will always try to plow into the largest piles and has a good knack of ending up glued to the ballcarrier.
Weaknesses
  • His lateral agility and burst often put him in position to make big plays, but he takes questionable routes to the ball and struggles to avoid blockers when in pursuit.
  • Generally an effective openfield tackler but doesn't wrap up consistently. Shows only average awareness in coverage.
  • Lacks pop and strength to anchor, though. Most effective when uncovered inside and chasing stretch plays to the sideline.
