Draft Rewind 2011 - Ryan Kerrigan - Washington Redskins

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about RYAN KERRIGAN: Purdue, 6037 267 4.71. Three-year starter who is very technique conscious and productive. Plays right defensive end in a four-man front. Rarely gets single blocked. Can’t be blocked with a tight end. Plays low and with good leverage. Can walk an offensive tackle back to the quarterback at times. Instinctive. Quick to read and react to pressure then gets to the ball. Right place at the right time player. Can run the hoop as a pass rusher, bending his course to the depth of the quarterback. Generally doesn’t get run out of the play. Good use of arms, hands, and leverage at the point of attack. Sudden first step. Plays on his feet. Uses a variety of pass rush moves including rip, spin, and slap and grab. Disruptive even if he doesn’t get the sack. Gets his hands up on the rush or tries to slap the ball out of the quarterback or ball carrier’s hand. Doesn’t give up on a play. Works from snap to whistle. Gets through traffic with urgency and intensity. Strong game in win over Ohio State in 2009 where he demonstrated all his tools. Knocked off the rust Senior Bowl week and impressed with his jackrabbit get off quickness. Purdue did not play in a bowl game, so it was about 8 weeks between starts for the elite pass rusher. The highly motivated competitor had 5 tackles, 3 TFL, and a sack in the game. In 2009 he led the Big-10 and was third nationally with 13 sacks. He also had 18 1/2 TFL. He led the nation with 7 FF, second most in Big-10 history. In 2010 he racked up 70 tackles, 12 1/2 sacks, 26 TFL, 5 FF, and 1 PBU. A Jared Allen clone. Edge speed:left 1.94, right 2.05. OSR:5/26. First round. (A-33 1/2, H-9 5/8, BP-31, 10-1.63).
