Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BILAL NICHOLS: Delaware, 6036 306 4.95. Two-year starter from Newark, DE. Lines up at nose tackle in the Blue Hens’ 3-4 defense. Excellent height, bulk and good length. Very good athletic ability, speed, burst, and change of direction. Good run defender with a powerful punch, and the ability to extend, separate and make a stop on the ball carrier. Can anchor a double. Plays with effort in pursuit. Efficient tackler. Good pass rusher with first step explosion, and a powerful bull rush. Also uses an arm over, and flashed a very fluid spin move at the East-West Shrine game. Still needs to work on his pass rush plan. The productive and active raw talent can play in any scheme. Got better and better every day against the talented blockers in the Shrine and Senior Bowl games. Competes hard every down. Produced a big play early in the Shrine game by hitting Buckeye quarterback JT Barrett, forcing a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. Will move with the quarterback and give a second effort. Projects as a starting tackle in a 4-3 scheme, however he may start out as a good rotational backup year one while he adjusts to the speed/level of competition of the NFL. 2017 stats: 56 T, 6.5 TFL, 5.5 sacks, 4 PBU, 1 QBH, 1 BK, 1 INT. OSR:6/22. Third/fourth round. (A-33 3/8, H-10 1/4, BP-29, 10-1.73).
