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.
