Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Kiser can move laterally and chase in pursuit. A tough, violent tackler with a non-stop motor, Kiser also shows good awareness when dropping into coverage.
  • Gets pressures on inside stunts and was too explosive for college guards to handle.
  • Shows toughness to get under the pads of tackles to bull them, club them upfield to get the inside lane, or fight through blocks for secondary rush when the passer steps up.
  • Has the fluid hips and long arms to turn and run with tight ends, as well as excellent range when dropping into zone coverage.
  • Flashes closing speed and agility to reach passers from the blind side or up the middle before they can escape.
  • Kiser shows good speed and closing burst when blitzing.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • As a pass rusher, Kiser needs the scheme to create deception and confusion to give him a free run.
  • As good as he is attacking downhill, he can get overaggressive and overrun plays, opening up cutback lanes for counter runs.
  • He’ll also need to be covered in the run game, more of a Will than a Mike in a 4-3 alignment.

*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.
