Lorenzo Neal DT Purdue Draft Profile

Strengths
  • 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.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Surprising initial quickness off the snap. Relies mostly on a simple bull rush at this point, which is quite effective in collapsing the pocket.
  • Strong, stout interior presence who often requires double team blocks to keep him from clogging running lanes. Short, thick legs and thick trunk which aid him in anchoring.
Weaknesses
  • He struggles with leverage off the snap and plays too tall, limiting his effectiveness as a pass rusher.
  • Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Lacks closing speed and inconsistent quickness off the snap prevents him from being an elite pass rusher.
