Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • His hand use is excellent; he’s strong in the upper body and consistently swats away blockers.
  • Charlton has violent hands and consistently breaks away and disengages from blockers. He’s instinctive, reading, reacting and locating the ball quickly, and finishing plays as an authoritative, wrap-up tackler.
  • Charlton explodes off the line with a quick first step, with agile feet to counter inside and closing burst to finish plays.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
  • He’s flexible enough to bend the edge, and he’s at his best when Charlton can use his quickness and change-of-direction abilities to counter back inside.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • With neither elite strength nor elite speed, Charlton lacks one standout trait.
  • Charlton also shows some stiffness when trying to bend the edge, often getting pushed past the pocket — he seems more comfortable countering back inside.
  • Charlton lacks the speed and range to consistently chase down plays in pursuit.
