Scouting Report: Strengths
  • One of the true straight-up edge burners in this draft class, Sherman has the kind of skill set NFL teams covet in an edge rusher.
  • Sherman locates the ball quickly, and he shows good instincts when dropping into zone coverage.
  • Shows a burst to close. Flashes explosive hitting ability and good lateral and downfield pursuit.
  • Sherman has the fluid movement skills and speed to turn and run in coverage against tight ends.
  • Big, aggressive hitter who can lay the wood. Has good awareness to quickly locate the ball, keeping his eyes up and on point.
  • He’s an explosive mover who plays an aggressive, physical style. He’s extremely instinctive playing the run, and when he was at his best he showed sideline-to-sideline range.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Sherman is so eager to get upfield that Sherman often abandons responsibilities against the run.
  • He has to develop a counter move or two in the pass rush, and he needs to make better use of his hands.
  • Often avoids blocks to survive between the tackles, which gives backs running lanes. Sherman will jump at hesitation routes.
