2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TARELL BASHAM: Ohio, 6035 259 4.74. Three-year starter from Rocky Mount, VA. Was voted the MAC Defensive Player of the Year in addition to setting Ohio’s all-time career sack record with 29.5. Lines up at both end spots. Demonstrates a relentless backside pursuit and understands angles and creases. Has a wide array of pass rush moves, very skilled with his hands and arms to miss the meat of a block. The prolific pass rusher put on 20 pounds in 2015 to help him play the run better. A disruptive athlete who plays with heavy hands. Quick off the ball and can bend the edge and flatten down the line. Fights through a lot of double teams. Powerful steps and strides. Translates speed to power and makes a difference on impact. Aggressive and violent in his play. Has a lot of tools and skills that every team wants in their pass rush repertoire in addition to on-field aggression. Needs to develop certain vital components, namely agility and flexibility, before he can be labeled a difference maker in the NFL. His top tier intangibles, glimpses of dominant tape, and a solid Senior Bowl week should give the notion he is heading in that direction. Senior Bowl notes: Had a good week getting work at defensive end and outside linebacker. Gets inside position on a tight end and controls them. Drops well to the flat and maintains leverage. Reacts on the throw. Explosive attacking blocker. A good effort player who gets locked up at times. Improved in zone coverage as the week went on. Versatile talent. 2016 stats: 49 T, 15 TFL, 10.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 12 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 1.69, right 2.00. OSR:17/40. Third/fourth round. (A-32 7/8, H-10 3/8, BP-15, 10-1.67).
