Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Possesses the length and power to ward off offensive tackles.
  • Shand has the heavy hands and upper-body strength to win with power. He drops his weight and anchors well against the run, holding up at the point of attack and capable of occupying double teams.
  • Flashes upper-body strength to rip and has the punch to push through interior linemen on stunts and twists.
  • He explodes off the line with a quick first step, with agile feet to counter inside and closing burst to finish plays.
  • Shand has the strong core and powerful hands to shed blockers, and Shand shows excellent instincts with the ability to quickly locate the ball.
  • His spin move is already NFL-caliber, and he displays a very good motor.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Not a quick-twitch player. Won't consistently threaten the edge. Few explosive qualities and lacks great initial burst or overall range for the position.
  • Shand isn’t a true edge burner and might be better off kicking inside on passing downs.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
