Draft Rewind 2006 - Mathias Kiwanuka - New York Giants

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MATHIAS KIWANUKA: Boston College, 6056 268 4.70. Three-year starter. Build like Jason Taylor. Long arms and a smooth athlete. Backside chase player. Has the talent and tools to rush the passer, but needs to get stronger at the point. Sudden off the edge. Needs to get bigger and stronger. Usually draws a double team. Somewhat of a long first step off the snap at times. Above average lateral quickness. Can turn the corner and get down the line and make plays. Struggles to make plays at him because he is so tall. Wrap tackler. Out of control as a pass rusher at times and can be faked out. Could improve his hand strength to control and stack blockers. Must work to play low and bend his knees because he is so high cut. Can be man-handled if he doesn’t play with leverage. Appears to have a problem putting on and keeping good weight. First/second round. (A-34 3/4, H-9 7/8, BP-17, 10-1.63).
