  • Corey Wootton Scouting Report
    By Matt McGuire

    Strengths:
  • Prototypical length and bulk
  • Long arms
  • Very strong at point of attack
  • Nice job of extending hands and controlling opponent
  • Flashes high potential in run support
  • Sets the edge
  • Good job of shedding linemen
  • Strong technician
  • Plays with solid motor
  • Scheme versatile
  • High upside as 5-technique



    Weaknesses:
  • Below-average athleticism
  • Lacks explosion
  • Mediocre agility
  • Uncomfortable in space
  • Never very dominant - never had any big games
  • Not much upside
  • Durability concerns (neck, right knee)
  • A bit of an overachiever

    Summary: I personally was not able to watch Wootton's junior tape, which I think is critical to the evaluation considering he was fully healthy that year as opposed to his 2009 season coming off his ACL tear. He might have lost some speed and agility. He profiles as a 4-3 left defensive end or a 3-4 5-technique defensive end. Wootton is projected to come off the board in the first three rounds, but I don't expect him to be much of a pass rusher in the NFL.

    Player Comparison: Kenyon Coleman. Coleman is a very good defender against the run with scheme versatility, but is limited in rushing the passer.
