Phidarian Mathis DL Alabama Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Has the ability to create a pile in the middle, even showing the ability to split the occasional double-team. However, is just as often blown off the ball due to his high pad level.
  • Good strength and balance to sit down, lock-out and create a pile, leading to possibilities inside and out (in the 3-4).
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
Weaknesses
  • Plays upright and struggles with leverage. Too often stonewalled at the line and doesn't show the hand strength or technique to shed or redirect blockers.
  • Plays too high at times, and gets carried downfield or put to the ground by better lineman when losing the leverage battle.
  • Needs to keep his pad level low; pops upright and plays too tall, struggling to maintain leverage off the snap.
  • Lacks closing speed and inconsistent quickness off the snap prevents him from being an elite pass rusher.
  • Needs to do a better job of being the aggressor and tossing blockers aside.
