Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Shows a good feel for combo blocks, and Sundell displays good quickness and flexibility when moving to the second level, capable of sealing the back side on reach blocks
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
  • Above-average football smarts and general intelligence. Plays with a nasty streak. Solid character and work ethic.
  • Lone concern is handling the superquick NFL edge rusher. Foot speed and quickness are very good, but not elite.
  • Sundell is a work in progress with high-end physical traits. He’s extremely light on his feet for a 300-pounder, a natural knee bender who plays with balance and leverage.
  • Has the natural power to move defenders at the point of attack. He also has the agility and speed to get out in front and land blocks at the second level. Sundell also shows a good understanding of angles when climbing to the second level.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Could be a liability against speed-to-power pass rushers early in his career.
  • Too often is pushed back into the pocket during pass protection becaus~ Sundell bends at the waist rather than at the knees. Relies more on precise angles than physicality in the running game.
  • Flashes the ability to move his man with his hands, but is not yet consistent in this area.

*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.
