NFL Combine Top Performer: DE/OLB Dontay Moch

A series of posts taking a quick look at a few of the linebackers and defensive lineman who stood out during their NFL Combine workouts this past Monday. Since I obviously don't know much about each of these guys, all the information found below was pulled from NFL.com and compiled by myself

Scouting Report

From NFL.com

Overview

Moch's a college defensive end and lacks size to keep his hand down in the NFL but is blessed with the burst and athleticism to develop into a 4-3 outside linebacker. Has the potential to be a pass rushing specialist. Lacks experience playing standing up in space, finding the football, and in pass coverage but fluid and quick enough to develop in these areas. Relentless in pursuit. Not stout at the point of attack and also doesn't currently have a wide arsenal of pass rushing moves. It may take some time, but Moch has several redeeming qualities. Mid-round prospect.

Strengths

Moch possesses very good size and outstanding speed and acceleration for a linebacker prospect. Uses hands well in pursuit and displays impressive range and closing burst. Tackles well in and near the box. Has great get off and quickness when rushing the passer. Athletic enough to play in underneath zone coverage.

Weaknesses

Lacks experience playing from a two-point stance, reading and reacting, and dropping into coverage. Struggles to hold up at the point of attack. Potential liability if asked to run with backs and tight ends in man coverage. Can miss open field tackles or take improper angles to the ball.
