SEC Scouting Reports for 2021 NFL Draft

2021 NFL Draft | SEC Scouting Reports: Florida Gators

Brad Stewart NFL Draft Scouting Report | Safety

Positives: Aggressive safety with an inconsistent game. Gives a lot of effort against the run, plays faster than his 40 time, and displays a closing burst. Breaks down well, works hard to get involved in the action, and sells out to make the tackle.

Negatives: Showed little progress in his game since his sophomore season. Marginal instincts. Tends to be overactive and bites on ball fakes.

Analysis: Stewart displayed a lot of ability as a sophomore in 2018, yet never capitalized and watched his game level off. He possesses solid size and a physical nature, but he comes with limited upside.

Donovan Stiner NFL Draft Scouting Report | Safety

Positives: Nice-sized safety who plays with good instincts. Quick to read and diagnose, quickly comes up the field defending the run, and keeps the action in front of him. Drives his shoulders through ball handlers and wraps up tackling. Fluid turning his hips in transition, possesses a closing burst, and explodes to the ball out of his plant. Immediately recognizes assignments and chases the action hard.

Negatives: Lacks great speed to the sidelines despite playing faster than his 40 time. Better playing downhill.

Analysis: Stiner is a tough, run-defending safety who shows solid ball skills between the numbers, but he lacks great range. He’s a traditional strong safety who can also line up in a zone system while helping out on coverage units.

Kyree Campbell NFL Draft Scouting Report | Defensive Line

Positives: Explosive one-gap defensive tackle who is best in a four-man line. Plays with good lean, gets leverage on opponents, and fires off the snap with a quick first step. Effectively uses his hands, easily changes direction, and gets down the line of scrimmage and out into space pursuing the action. Possesses a closing burst and gives effort.

Negatives: Controlled at the point by a single blocker and gets stood up at the line. Average athlete.

Analysis: Campbell was a steady-yet-unspectacular lineman for Florida, though he did show a lot of pass-rush skill last season. He’s a rotational lineman in a four-man front, but comes with average upside.

Stone Forsythe Davis NFL Draft Scouting Report | Offensive Line

Positives: Large college left tackle who projects to the right side at the next level. Patient, stays square, and shows strength at the point. Anchors in pass protection, turns defenders from the action, and seals open running lanes. Keeps his head on a swivel, correctly places his hands into defenders, and works through the whistle. Makes solid use of angles and body positioning.

Negatives: Lacks footwork off the edge. Struggles to adjust and pick up blitzes. Exploited by speed rushers.

Analysis: Forsythe has next-level size, but is limited to a small area and comes with marginal upside. He’s a backup at right tackle or guard for a power-gap offense.

2021 NFL Draft | SEC Scouting Reports: Kentucky Wildcats

A.J. Rose NFL Draft Scouting Report | Running Back

Positives: Nice-sized ball carrier who is best in a straight line. Displays vision as well as instincts, effectively follows blocks, and keeps his feet moving. Runs with good lean, finds the open lane, and hits the hole with authority. Keeps his feet moving and works runs.

Negatives: Lacks the speed and agility necessary to turn the corner. Gets in trouble when he tries to run east and west. Not a creative runner who makes defenders miss or avoids piles.

Analysis: Rose is a hard-charging ball carrier who is best between the tackles. He lacks any outstanding physical characteristic to his game and is one-dimensional, which will make it difficult for him to grab hold of a roster spot.

Jamar Watson NFL Draft Scouting Report | Linebacker

Positives: Underrated linebacker who shows a lot of force off the edge and up the field. Strong, rarely off his feet, and plays off blocks getting to the action. Effectively uses his hands and jolts blockers with explosive punch, knocking them off the ball. Bends off the edge as a pass rusher standing over tackle, possesses a closing burst, and wraps up tackling. Solid athlete who gets depth on pass drops.

Negatives: Out-positioned from the action by larger tackles. Lacks the size teams want in a pass-rushing linebacker, and lacks the play speed needed in pursuit.

Analysis: Watson was a forceful linebacker who consistently disrupted the action and made plays behind the line of scrimmage at Kentucky. He comes with average measurables, but gets the most from his ability. He could end up as a dime linebacker/pass-rush specialist at the next level.

Quinton Bohanna NFL Draft Scouting Report | Defensive Line

Positives: Large gap-occupying nose tackle who takes up a lot of room in the middle of the field. Fires off the snap with a quick first step and gets double-teamed by opponents, yet holds his ground. Works his hands throughout the action, flashes power in his lower body, and is a load to handle.

Negatives: Does not play with proper pad level, gets tall and makes himself an easy target. Small-area lineman who is ineffective rushing the passer.

Analysis: Bohanna is a size prospect who was an overwhelming force when focused on the task at hand. He must learn to bend his knees and play with leverage to have any type of career at the next level.
