Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s very good with his hands, a technician with the violence, quickness, and the long arms to ward off blockers. Lacy has a great motor and enough creativity to make plays late in the down as a pass rusher.
  • Flashes upper-body strength to rip and has the punch to push through interior linemen on stunts and twists.
  • Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
  • Despite his relatively tall frame, Lacy typically plays with a low enough pad level and natural power to push the pocket with the bull rush.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Lacy has a wide base and a low center of gravity to hold his ground, as well as the upper-body strength to shed blockers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • While Lacy moves well laterally, he doesn’t always get there in pursuit.
  • His pass rush moves need refinement, and he doesn’t have a lot of range in coverage.
  • He’s stiff as an athlete, as he lacks the flexibility to truly threaten the edge.
