Edge Rashan Gary NFL Draft Profile – Michigan

There is a lot to like about Rashan Gary, but how high will he go in the 2019 draft?

Rashan Gary
Edge
Michigan
Class Year: Junior
DOB – 12/3/1997
Height – 6’4″ Weight – 281 lbs
Twitter: @RashanAGary
Combine Results:
40 Yard Dash  – 4.58 seconds
Bench Press – 26 Reps (225 lbs)
Vertical Jump – 38.0 Inches
Broad Jump – 120.0 Inches
3 Cone Drill – 7.26 Seconds

Strengths:

Gary played three seasons with Michigan and led them to multiple victories off his own back. He is a versatile defender but prefers to come off the edge. His leg power is incredible, couple that with great hands and the ability to throw players out of the way and you get a talented edge rusher. He knows how to work through an opponent and is an all-around violent defender. You don’t want to be between him and the man with the ball.

Weaknesses:

There are a few. He is very stiff and doesn’t have great hip movement. He plays too tight. Relies a lot on his strength instead. Sometimes he is late to read a play or find the ball when in motion. Not great flexibility and can run past the point of contact at times.

Overall Review:

He is not an every-down player and when he is, he is inconsistent. He will be found out for this in the NFL. He is recovering from a shoulder injury, which could be a problem throughout his career. Still a high first-round prospect for me.
