Scouting Report: Brian Price
Non-position specific categories
Defensive Line Specific Categories
Very disruptive pass rusher. Plays with great leverage and always gets under a guys pads. Explosive first step and great quickness. Always in the backfield making plays or disrupting them. Excels at the bull rush and just overpowering his man. Can anchor well against the run. Has a powerful punch and can knock people backwards. Low center of gravity and good balance.
Has serious conditioning issues and needs someone to motivate him. Struggles to disengage from blocks in the run game. Awareness is sub par and he looks lost at times. Will take himself out of the play at times. Seems to run through people rather than tackle them. Doesn’t have many pass rushing moves. Not very versatile and can only play in certain schemes.
Price is a very talented player who’s draft stock has taken a drop since the NFL combine even though he tested fairly well. Concerns about his conditioning and commitment to football started to arrive and he’s been described as fat and lazy. The potential is there for him to become a great player if he plays a 1-gap penetrator and has some good coaches to motivate him.
Two year starter at UCLA.
