Ralph Holley DT Western Michigan Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Average quickness and power and his bull rush will be stonewalled. Comes off the snap high, losing leverage.
  • His strength up and down the line of scrimmage, and quickness for his size, make him a mid- to late-round target.
  • High-effort, thickly built defender with good strength and the leverage to create a pile. Locates_ the ball quickly and pursues with passion, showing_ good lateral agility while extending the play to the sideline.
Weaknesses
  • Not overly flexible or loose. Limited, predictable pass-rush arsenal. Struggles to locate the ball at times and needs to do a better job with his read-and-react skills.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • Has limited range and is more of a run-stuffer who won't make many plays in the backfield - a mid-round, prospect who should be able to offer depth along the defensive line in any scheme.
  • Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
  • 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.
