Phidarian Mathis DT Alabama Scouting Report

Position rank: 4
40-yard dash time: 5.22-seconds
Height: 6-4, Weight: 312 lbs
Strengths
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Played with good leverage, even on the nose, despite average bulk. Hustle defender with a good bull rush inside that can close and get home when quarterbacks leave the pocket.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Combines strength and footwork to fill holes inside, as well. Recovers from cut blocks or falling on his way to make a tackle.
  • Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance from his high school wrestling days.
Weaknesses
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Plays too high at times, and gets carried downfield or put to the ground by better lineman when losing the leverage battle.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Doesn't play fundamentally sound and lacks much technique in his repertoire.
  • Lacks closing speed and inconsistent quickness off the snap prevents him from being an elite pass rusher.
