Kingsley Enagbare

EDGE South Carolina 6-4 258 SR #1


 

GRADE: 87  OVR RANK: TBC  POS RANK: TBC
ARM LENGTH: 34 3/4″ // HAND SIZE: 10 5/8″
40YD: 4.87 (54%) // 10YD: 1.67 (69%) // VJ: 36 1/2″ (92%) // BJ: 9’09” (73%)
BP: ( %) // SS: 4.54 (39%)// 3C: 7.51 (33%)

Projection: Good early contributor, could play a lot of snaps in a 1-gap scheme that allows him to get upfield. Will at worst be a dangerous situational rusher. Draft projection: Round 3 ~ GrindingtheMocks.com

Ravens Fit: There is seriously intriguing potential with Enagbare as a pass-rusher. His explosion and first step-quickness alone would be alluring but it comes with polished pass rush technique, an excellent array of moves put together in a well-executed rush plan. His play against the run though, is where the Ravens might see him as a less than ideal fit. He’s a little light in the pants to set the kind of edge the Ravens look for in their run defense. He can certainly make stops in the running game but the Ravens would look for him to constrict running lanes more. He could contribute early as a situational rusher as he develops though.

Overall Fit 3/5

Context

Stands up as the 7 or 9 technique almost exclusively. Has on limited occasions rushed with his hand in the dirt or from off-ball positions.

Pass Rush

He has remarkable explosion and upfield burst. He is very good getting off the ball and with his first step quickness. He has a very good rush plan with an array of moves all deployed in expert fashion. He has a club rip and club swim that takes advantage of his excellent length as well as the quickness, power, accuracy and timing in his hands. He is able to clobber the Offensive Linemen before bringing his long vine of an arm over quickly to control the back shoulder of the OL. His accurate and powerful hands also help him in countering OL with good recovery ability in situations where his initial move doesn’t win and he gets into a hand fight. His hands are active, tough to deal with because of his length and a nuisance. He has a good motor, physical toughness and competitiveness. He also converts speed to power well, can walk his blocker straight back into the QB.

He uses his good hand placement and length to lock out and gain leverage. He also sets his power moves up well with his footwork, setting the blocker up with euro steps and pressure steps to the outside before trying to come through. On this note, he has an effective long-arm move too, which is the best move to showcase his counters – he has an excellent inside counter to any OL that negates this long arm. He also has a dangerous cross-chop due to his length and the power in his hands. Can also deploy a spin move. He can get in passing lanes and get his arms up and also gets out to the sideline to cover when he reads the QB. He has solid bend to him to corner but he can, against OL with better play strength, struggle to sustain as he rounds the edge and can be pushed out and lose his footing.

Vs Run

He has equally good upfield burst against the run, no matter the down/distance or his stance. He’s into you first and has good hand placement and timing, always playing with leverage despite his height and length. On the frontside of blocks, he will set a disciplined edge, can use his hands to defeat blocks and his processing to ensure he tackles the runner in his gap. He is a little light in the pants though and while he has solid play strength because of his technique, he can struggle to bench-press the blocker and constrict running lanes. As a backside defender he can get disrupted by motion and movement from the OL across the formation i.e. pullers and kick-out blocks. On these he can be sealed inside and cut back outside of him. He can also be sealed inside by pullers when on the front-side of blocks. He can then use his hands and processing to disengage and make the tackle but OL with better play strength can sustain.

SUMMARY
Frightening explosion, a variety of moves, excellent hand usage, put together in a very good rush plan. Disciplined, productive run defender but needs to set a more dominant edge
