Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Redmond is a high-motor pass rusher who shows a good feel for countering, and Redmond has the functional strength to bounce off tackles and close on the quarterback with second effort.
  • His closing burst is outstanding, and he routinely finished plays last year. He has range and toughness as a run defender, capable of dropping anchor to set the edge and showing the acceleration to chase down the backside in pursuit.
  • His handwork is excellent. Redmond is tough against the run, playing with a firm base when setting the edge and showing the upper-body strength to stack and shed blockers.
  • Has enough twitch and speed to make an impact coming off the edge as a third-down specialist.
  • Quick off the snap in the pass rush, he has violent hands and a good feel for working inside counter moves.
  • His spin is his best move, tight and quick to the point that blockers don’t have time to react to it. His closing burst is outstanding.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Redmond is so eager to get upfield that Redmond often abandons responsibilities against the run.
  • Because he doesn’t show much variety in his pass-rush moves, he may have to come offthe field on third downs.
  • Redmond lacks suddenness as a mover, and he isn’t going to do much in the pass rush when working one-on-one.

*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.
