Draft Rewind 2004 - Shaun Phillips - San Diego Chargers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about SHAUN PHILLIPS: Purdue, 6030 255 4.79. Four year starter who had his best season as a senior. An undersized, narrow-framed left end. Not real muscular or strong. Quick at the snap but not a disruptive run defender. Allows blockers to get into his body to control him. Has the foot movement to ride blocks and flow down the line but he tends to give up too much ground before disengaging. Doesn’t do a good job of leveraging blocks to the ball. Gives an effort in pursuit but he lacks explosive speed. More quick than fast. Above average pass rusher. Had a lot of sacks as a senior. Pressures the edge well but gets pushed wide a little too much. Shows the flexibility to turn the corner. Changes directions well. Can bend and close back inside. Accelerates well off a move. Gives good second effort in his attack. Light on his feet. Does a good job of working his hands to free himself to bat passes. Needs to get stronger to be more than a situational player at the next level. Could project as a linebacker.
