2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Brian Price

  • Strong, thick, wide body
  • Tremendous short area quickness
  • Very quick first step
  • Nice initial pop at the point of attack
  • Explodes off snap
  • Plays with high motor
  • Great instincts – recognizes play quickly
  • Gives solid second effort
  • Tough
  • Disciplined in gap control
  • Penetrates and disrupts
  • Active hands – doesn’t let linemen get into his body
  • Has a deadly club move
  • Nice body control – can bend and drive past linemen
  • Nice skill set and collegiate production

  • Frame is maxed out
  • Gets engulfed against bigger linemen
  • Can get overwhelmed and frustrated when run at
  • Lacks great speed
  • Lacks upside – a bit of an overachiever
  • One-gap DT only in 4-3 schemes
  • Short arms?

    Summary: Price is a player I like a lot for teams that need a 3-technique (think a Warren Sapp-type role). He makes a lot of plays and is just flat out dominant at times. He doesn’t take many plays off and it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s revealed that he has top intangibles. He’ll find himself drafted in the top 25 picks.

    Player Comparison: Mike Patterson. Patterson is also a quick, stocky defensive tackle who disrupts at the line.
