A few days ago, I posted Lorenzo Mauldin’s results from the NFL Combine in the tests he participated in. This one is a little different. This will show his measurements and the analysis on him from NFL.com. It also gives his grade, and what that number means as a projection for him as a pro.
Arm Length: 33″
Weight: 259 lbs
Hands: 9 7/8″
Analysis from NFL.com
Confident and tough with high football character. Gives second effort and doesn’t quit on plays. Arm over can make tackles look foolish in pass rush. Productive and active against the run.
Rigid mover lacking thickness in lower body. Doesn’t consistently utilize power in his hands. Plays too upright. Doesn’t dip and turn corner as tightly as you would like for a 3-4 edge rusher.
SOURCES TELL US
“He’ll get pegged as a 3-4 rush ‘backer, but a 4-3 team could look at him as a situational pass rusher if he is there late second day.” — AFC area scout “He overcame a tough childhood and developed a mindset that nothing is going to stop him. He works his butt off and he wants to be great. I’m cheering hard for this kid and I’ll bang the table for him when the time is right.” — NFC North scout
Known for strong mental makeup, Mauldin is expected to check all of the character boxes, according to scouts. Productive pass rusher with a knack for beating tackles inside. Finds the ball quickly and chases against the run. Very active, productive collegiate player.
