As a pass rusher, he chalked up 34 total pressures, and 21 QB hurries, 9 QB hits, and a solid 4 sacks during the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s a high-motor player, and Sewell shows good enough hand use, as well as a tight spin move, to win as an edge rusher.
  • Sewell has good quickness and an excellent understanding of angles, often beating blockers to the spot.
  • He can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level.
  • He combines the athleticism of a chase-and-tackle defender and the toughness and physicality of a classic 4-3 Mike.
  • Good closing speed with long arms to drag down quarterbacks and running backs.
  • He’s rangy and instinctive when he’s looking into the backfield as a zone defender.
  • Sewell has the strong core and powerful hands to shed blockers, and he shows excellent instincts with the ability to quickly locate the ball.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • As good as Sewell is attacking downhill, he can get overaggressive and overrun plays, opening up cutback lanes for counter runs.
  • As explosive as he is as an athlete, he needs to become a better finisher.
  • He’s perfectly capable of converting speed into power when he gets to the ball, but too often he slips off tackles or turns into a grab-and-drag tackler rather than a hitter, failing to keep his legs driving through the hit.
