Draft Profile: Bio
Taron Vincent from IMG Academy High School was rated a 4 star recruit by ESPN and handed a 5 star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Vincent opted to join Ohio State.

In 2018 as a freshman Vincent saw action in 11 games and played on a total of 100 snaps for the Buckeyes. He recorded 2 tackles, no assists, while adding 3 stops. As a pass rusher, he added 3 total pressures, which included 2 QB hurries, no QB hits, and one sack on the season.

As a sophomore for the Buckeyes in 2020 Vincent played in 7 games and took part on 158 snaps for the Buckeyes. He recorded 2 tackles, 4 assists, while adding 2 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 4 total pressures, and 4 QB hurries, no QB hits, and no sacks during the year.

In 2021 as a junior Vincent played in 12 games and contributed on 370 snaps. He recorded 15 tackles, 5 assists, while making 9 stops. As a pass rusher, he produced 9 total pressures, which included 6 QB hurries, 3 QB hits, and no sacks on the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Coordinated with smooth movement skills. High-effort rusher and works through the whistle. Relentless worker, fighting off blocks and battling to the ball.
  • He looks like a potential pro starter and top 120 pick, ideally suited for a team that utilizes a rotation heavy defensive line.
  • Flashes exciting burst off the snap to penetrate. Can slip through gaps with his get-off and is an intimidating force for quarterbacks to avoid.
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
  • Flashes enough quickness off the snap to threaten gaps at three-technique, especially when slanting.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
