Kenneth Gainwell Scouting Report

Memphis running back Kenneth Gainwell was one of the more exciting players to watch in college football during the 2019 season. After opting out this year, Gainwell unfortunately wasn’t able to add on to his impressive tape. Despite this lack of film, he has shown plenty of upside and potential during his shortened college career. His playmaking made Memphis one of the most fun teams to watch in 2019. He became almost impossible to tackle when he hit his rhythm and in the open field he was unstoppable. He can navigate running lanes and burst through holes very quickly which let him gain huge chunks of yardage in the blink of an eye.

Chazz Surratt Scouting Report

The former quarterback converted linebacker Chazz Surratt has a lot to bring to the table. In his first two years playing linebacker at North Carolina, Surratt made the All-SEC First Team twice and totaled 206 tackles. His impact on the North Carolina defense was tremendous, and the effect was felt as soon as he made the position switch. His great run support and zone coverage ability have put him on the radar as one of the more underrated linebackers in the class. However he’s not perfect of course, his speed and size are below average, but his instincts help make up for this flaw. He also struggles when tackling sometimes which is a red flag for a lot of teams. Even with these concerns, the talent and upside are there for Surratt. Good linebackers are in high demand in the NFL right now, and if Surratt makes the transition well, he can be elite.

Nick Bolton Scouting Report

After starting off the season as a projected number one or two linebacker in the country due to an incredible sophomore season, Nick Bolton of Missouri did his best to keep up the success. Although he did cool off a bit during his Junior year, Bolton showed growth from last year even after such an incredible season. He’s made a strong case to be the 3rd linebacker taken in this class after Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Micah Parsons. His incredible play has brought him into possible first-round conversations, although the most likely landing spot for him is in the early second round. Regardless he has still shown some first-round talent and could end up being a great pick if he does indeed fall to the second.

Dylan Moses Scouting Report

The leader at the helm of the 2020 Alabama defense, Dylan Moses, can’t prove much more than he already has. He’s a 2-time national champion, in 2018 he was a second-team All-American and second-team All-SEC player, and even while battling injuries all through 2020 he still was put on the All-SEC first team. He’s shown he’s capable of taking on a leadership role, which is a trait strongly desired at the linebacker position. He provided great run support to the Bama defense, and his ability to fill running lanes was a huge play disruptor. He doesn’t recognize plays as fast as NFL teams may want him to, but he’s usually still able to make a tackle using his freakish athleticism. Teams may have questions about his block shedding as well, but Moses is a player that’s shown he can develop his game quickly, so this shouldn’t be as glaring of an issue going forward. Coaching staff love a coachable player such as Moses, and his skill set makes him a day one player in the draft.
