Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Flashes explosive pop on contact. Wraps arms securely to make the reliable tackle, but is not technically sound.
  • He’s rangy and instinctive when he’s looking into the backfield as a zone defender.
  • He’s most comfortable moving downhill and attacking, but Hyppolite shows the kind of speed and fluidity that suggests he could be more of a sideline-to-sideline mover.
  • Trusts his eyes and shows no hesitation with good anticipation to avoid blockers.
  • Hyppolite can move laterally and chase in pursuit. A tough, violent tackler with a non-stop motor, he also shows good awareness when dropping into coverage.
  • Work in progress as a pass rusher, with upfield burst and flexibility to dip and scrape.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks functional strength in the pass rush, struggling to disengage and too easily pushed past the pocket.
  • Hyppolite is in a hurry to get upfield but shows poor instincts when locating the ball against the run.
  • Hyppolite doesn’t play with the functional strength and physicality to fight through blocks; he’ll need to be covered up in order to maximize his playmaking.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
