Avery Moss Defensive End – Youngstown State
Powerful player that plays with plenty of upper body strength. Consistently pushes Lineman back into Quarterback. Can win the edge with speed but doesn’t show it all that often. Has a motor that doesn’t stop until the play is over. Consistent tackler at the line of scrimmage. Doesn’t mind chasing down ball carrier if play gets passed him. Can stand up and rush or with hand in the dirt. Has position flexibility to rush from either the left or right side, even slide inside on money downs.
Can win with speed but doesn’t show it enough. Needs to develop more pass rush moves outside of his “go-to” power moves. Tends to play tall instead of using his frame to gain leverage on Offensive Lineman. Doesn’t offer much bend in his legs when attempting to capture edge.
Raw Player that relies on his power to win against Offensive Lineman. Played a lot of Right Defensive End at Youngstown State. but fits best as a Left End in a 4-3 scheme. See no problems with Moss holding up in the run game at the next level, but won’t lead the league in sacks. Position flexibility and his high motor will impress scouts. Played on the opposite side of the line from the highly touted teammate Rivers and had similar production while receiving a good percentage of the double teams.
