Scouting Report: Alex Carrington

November 14, 2009

Alex Carrington, DE, Arkansas St.

Strengths: Has great size for a 5 technique Defensive End … One of only a few good 5 technique defensive ends in the draft … Has elite athleticism … Tall, strong and powerful … Stops the run well … Very productive … Has the ability to get in the backfield and break up plays.

Weaknesses: Has never played against good competition … Doesn’t always pop off the Defensive Line … May only be an o.k pass rusher in the NFL … Has questionable speed … Durability concerns … Didn’t have big hype until the Senior Bowl.

Overview: Alex Carrington is a good prospect and while he isn’t the best 5 technique Defensive End to enter the draft the past few years, he is one of only a few good ones in this years class. That is why he may be drafted higher than his talent has earned him. Don’t let that take away from his talent though. He is a great run blocker and one of the most athletic Ends in the draft.

2nd to 3rd rounder
