Draft Profile: Bio

As a sophomore for the Bulldogs in 2021 Sherman played in 10 games and took part on 97 snaps for the Bulldogs. He recorded 3 tackles, 2 assists, while adding 3 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 4 total pressures, and 4 QB hurries, no QB hits, and no sacks during the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Best attribute. Extreme quickness off the edge, has the flexibility to turn the corner.
  • Handles misdirection well with quick change-of-direction ability. Comes downhill quickly against the run when he has an open lane.
  • Greet feel in coverage. Often arrives at the receiver at the same time as the ball, giving up few yards after the catch. Possesses straight-line speed to stay with or chase down receivers in man.
  • Works hard to get better and gives top effort on every play. Heads-up defender who shows good field awareness.
  • Will stiff-arm linemen to stay free on some plays. Athletic enough to stay with running backs out of the backfield and knock receivers off crossing routes.
  • Gets pressures on inside stunts and was too explosive for college guards to handle.
  • Has good balance and short-area burst to stay on his feet through contact
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Often engulfed by NFL-caliber tackles due to his lack of height. Must improve consistency in beating cut blocks.
  • Possesses average instincts. More likely to make plays with quick reactions than by diagnosing.
