Drew Wiley DT Kansas State Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Tall, solid frame with adequate length and has done a nice job losing the bad weight and firming his body.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance from his high school wrestling days.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
Weaknesses
  • Does not test offensive linemen with quickness or strong initial punch.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Quick first step with fluid movements off the ball. Highly competitive and fierce, showing relentless effort to the pocket with a nonstop motor
  • Hands could be much more violent when trying to gain control of the block. Does not hold his ground while facing a double-team; first instinct is to roll away to make a play, which can create a large hole.
