2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jason Strowbridge, DT, North Carolina
Redshirted as a true freshman in 2015. Came back in 2016 and recorded 12 tackles and two sacks. Played in all 12 games with nine starts in 2017 and had 34 tackles and 5.5 tackles for a loss. Had 11 starts in 2018 and earned Honorable Mention for All-ACC with 36 tackles, 5.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for a loss. Named to the All-ACC Third Team as a senior with 45 tackles, 6.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks and an ACC-leading three fumble recoveries.
Explosive three-technique prospect who plays with incredible athleticism. Bends his knees, plays with proper pad level and consistently gets leverage on opponents. Fires off the snap, works his hands throughout the action, and keeps his feet moving.
Quickly changes direction, nicely redirects to ball carriers and makes plays in every area of the field. Flows down the line to get outside the box and covers a lot of area. Instinctive, gives effort in all areas, and wraps up tackling.
Has a bit of a thin build and struggles to get off blocks. Displays little power.
Strowbridge was highly rated by NFL scouts entering the season, and he lived up to expectations during the season and went on to have a terrific week of practice at the Senior Bowl. He needs to physically mature and add a bit of strength to his frame, but at the very least Strowbridge offers possibilities as a three-technique tackle and should only improve in time.
