Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Coordinated with smooth movement skills. High-effort rusher and works through the whistle. Relentless worker, fighting off blocks and battling to the ball.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Quick footed with rare burst for his size. Very good quickness off the snap to split defenders and penetrate the pocket.
  • 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.
  • Vincent plays with leverage and brings good power, especially in his lower body, consistently holding up against double teams in the run game.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
  • 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.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
