Malcolm Koonce DE Buffalo Draft Profile

Las Vegas Raiders Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 3 - Pick Number: 79 (LV)
Strengths
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
  • 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.
  • Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
Weaknesses
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • Uncreative pass rusher who lacks counter moves. Raw technique. Streaky and slow to react.
  • Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
  • Not an elite athlete with average functional strength and size. Lacks the length to fend off blocks and can be too energetic and lose his angle. Doesn't have a natural position at the next level.
