2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Bradlee Anae, DE, Utah Utes

Positives
Impactful pass rusher who significantly improved his draft stock last season. Agile, can bend off the edge and flatten to pursue the action. Immediately alters his angle of attack, displays the ability to make plays in space and stays with the action. Remains disciplined with assignments and does more than just mindlessly rush up the field.

Fires off the snap with a quick first step, works his hands throughout the action and slices through blocks on the inside. Shows a variety of moves to get off blocks. Plays with terrific pad level. Effective out of a three-point stance and standing over tackle.

Negatives
Struggles to get off blocks once engaged. Outpositioned by opponents if he does not get the first step. Ran poorly at the combine. Primarily used up the field at Utah.

Analysis
Anae displayed terrific progress the past three seasons and has watched his draft stock climb north, except for his poor 40 time at the NFL Combine. He’s a fluid, agile pass rusher with the athleticism necessary to be used in space, and he only needs to improve his strength.
