Draft Rewind 2004 - Vince Wilfork - New England Patriots

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about VINCE WILFORK: Miami, 6012 325 5.10. Junior eligible. Productive rotation player early in his career. Dynamic first year starter in ’03. Not a classic specimen. Shorter than ideal — has a big belly. Thick-legged with a wide upper body and excellent strength. Explosive off the ball. Has a quick first step and is powerful into blocks. Does a good job of controlling his man, fighting the double team, and clogging the middle. Holds the point well. Usually plays low. Will overextend and go to the ground a little too much. Separates and sheds well, but he can be late to locate, as he sometimes gets too focused on the blocker and doesn’t look for the ball. Forceful tackler — can bring down a runner on the spot. Limited range type player — runs well for his size but is not an all-out pursuit player. Solid inside pass rusher with a fine combination of strength and aggressive moves. Uses his hands well. Keeps his feet active. Short strider with a strong closing burst. Quality prospect — needs to control his weight.
