Scouting Report: Vladimir Ducasse
Non-position specific categories
Offensive Lineman Specific Categories
Ducasse’s biggest strength, is his strength. He’s a huge guy with great weight distribution and strength. Dominated the D1AA competition. Terrific run blocker who gets good leverage and gets good push. Has good knee bend and he knows not to bend at the waist.
Is still pretty raw and new to football. Level of competition wasn’t great and he struggled at times at the Senior Bowl. Has slow, heavy feet and stiff hips which might prohibit him from being an effective pulling guard. Chances of being an effective tackle are slim because of a slow kick slide and inability to handle speed rushers.
Ducasse was one of the best stories to watch this draft season. He was born in Haiti and was obviously affected by the disaster there, but he kept his mind on football which shows a commitment to the game and achieving his goals. He should go to a team that loves a power running back and will be patient with teaching him better pass blocking technique
