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.

*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.
