Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Best attribute. Extreme quickness off the edge, has the flexibility to turn the corner.
  • Quick off the snap in the pass rush, Diabate has violent hands and a good feel for working inside counter moves.
  • Plays fast, flows with the action, showing smooth lateral agility and short-area burst. Has good instincts and awareness to quickly find the ball.
  • He’s very good in coverage when looking into the backfield in zone coverage.
  • He’s aggressive shooting gaps, redirecting downfield quickly and closing fast on the ball carrier. Diabate also has the ideal length and dip-and-bend ability to be a pass-rushing threat off the edge.
  • Diabate can move laterally and chase in pursuit. A tough, violent tackler with a non-stop motor, he also shows good awareness when dropping into coverage.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Diabate is on the small side and struggles to slip blocks; he’ll need to be covered up in order to make plays.
  • Diabate is narrow shouldered and won’t be able to carry much more weight on his frame.
  • He’s a little more finesse than power at this point and will have to prove he’s up to the physicality of the NFL.
