2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Neville Gallimore, DT, Oklahoma Sooners

Career Snapshot
Two-year starter who earned Third Team All-America honors and made 30 tackles (7.5 for loss) with four sacks and two forced fumbles as a senior in 2019. Named Honorable Mention All-Big 12 and made 50 tackles (five for loss) with three sacks and two forced fumbles as a junior. Started the first five games in 2017 before an injury forced him to miss time and limited his playing time upon his return.

Athletic, explosive interior defensive lineman with the ability to make plays on the ball. Agile and easily changes direction. Flows outside the box and redirects to the ball carrier in order to make the tackle.

Plays with a nasty attitude, attacks opponents and shows a closing burst to the play. Plays with proper pad level, effectively fights with his hands throughout the action and keeps his feet moving. Focused on by opponents but plays with leverage.

Easily taken from the action by blocks or sealed from plays by a single opponent. Inconsistent and streaky. Does not show a consistently explosive first step off the snap.

Though he was consistent for Oklahoma, Gallimore was never a top playmaker on the Sooners defensive line. He’s quick, explosive and agile and comes with good upside, but Gallimore must really put the pedal to the metal and start to be more consistent.
