Has outstanding size for a defensive end�A very instinctive, athletic pass rusher with a quick burst out of his stance�A very powerful player who has good strength�Is a fluid athlete in pursuit�Does a good (not great) job versus the run�Shows tons of range; can cover a lot of ground�Can play on either side of the line in a 4-3 scheme�Has high upside.
Sometimes has trouble protecting his legs because he is just so tall and long�Doesn�t have great timed speed�Needs to use better technique and seems to get by just on his raw athleticism and motor; needs to play with better leverage...Sometimes play too high.
Calais Campbell has the potential to go No. 1 overall like Courtney Brown and Mario Williams because he has elite athleticism and great size�Needs to pick up where he left off in his junior season if he wants to keep his draft stock high�I don�t think he is the best fit at nose guard in a 3-4 defense despite his size.
