In 2019 as a freshman Asante saw action in 5 games and played a total of 58 snaps at linebacker for the Tar Heels. He recorded just 8 tackles, 4 assists, while adding 3 stops.

As a pass rusher, he tallied 21 total pressures, which included 15 QB hurries, one QB hit, and 5 sacks on the season.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Keeps feet moving after initial contact. Jumps inside as a counter to typical rush, but needs to show a larger variety of moves.
  • Good closing speed with long arms to drag down quarterbacks and running backs.
  • He’s rangy and instinctive when he’s looking into the backfield as a zone defender.
  • Asante shows good quickness off the line of scrimmage and flashes the violent hands to win around the edge.
  • He has excellent awareness in zone coverage.
  • Asante 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.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Asante is slow to locate the ball and too often overruns plays, easily fooled by counters and misdirections. He has limited experience in coverage, and his awareness when dropping into zone will likely be an issue.
  • Lacks functional strength to shed and take on blocks at the point of attack.
  • Asante doesn’t play with the functional strength and physicality to fight through blocks; he’ll need to be covered up in order to maximize his playmaking.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
