  • Defensive End

  • Northern Illinois


  • Larry English's Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths: Great build: strong and has solid muscle definition ... Consistently impressive statistical production ... Tough, physical ... Gritty player who maximizes his talent on the field; great motor ... Does a great job of anticipating the play and has a sixth sense you look for; Instinctive ... Gives second effort as a pass rusher ... Virtually unstoppable rip move ... Gets leverage and powerfully executes the bull rush ... Nice hand technique at point of attack ... Brings leadership to the table ... Outstanding character off the field.

    Weaknesses: Does not have much lateral range ... Lacks flexibility and some balance ... Does not explode off the snap; burst concerns ... Not versatile; strictly a 3-4 outside linebacker ... Maximized body frame? ... Can he pass rush standing up in the 3-4? ... Huge durability concerns.

    Summary: English is going to be a safe pick for the 3-4 teams, yet still has some upside in his game. I really do not see a 4-3 team spending a first- or second-round pick on him. English has great intangibles, but they are countered by his long injury history. What you see is what you get, and I am not concerned about him playing against lower level competition. English will likely come off the board in the low first to second round.

    Player Comparison: LaMarr Woodley. Woodley had the same high motor, physical style of play coming out of Michigan and has thrived within the Steelers 3-4 scheme.
