Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about CARL GRANDERSON: Wyoming, 6046 254 4.81. Three year starter from Sacramento, CA. A tall lanky prospect who projects as 3-4 outside linebacker. Physical attributes for the position are excellent with long arms and well proportioned frame. Flashes quick hands to get into a blocker’s frame and create separation. Can shed and quickly get into a tackle on the edge. Makes plays in space with good lateral movement and an explosive burst into a tackle. Has range in pursuit with proper angles to the ball. Solid in coverage with fluid reactions getting into a drop and staying in the underneath throwing lane. As a pass rusher flashes an around the corner bend that can collapse a pocket. Can counter with a quick spin or push pull to the inside. Keeps coming in chase mode displaying second effort to get to the quarterback. Struggles at times versus the edge run and can lose contain versus a hook block. Too easily washed out of a play by a powerful blocker and has spent some time on the ground. Lacks consistency in timing pass rush moves and is too often stalemated. Not as productive as his athletic ability dictates. Will be drafted more on potential then production. Has special team ability and projects as a developmental backup that will have to be a solid special team player. 2018 stats: 40 T, 7.5 TFL, 3 sacks, 2 PBU, 3 QBH, 1 INT (1 TD). Edge speed:left 2.39, right 2.11. OSR:17/31. Sixth/seventh round. (A-34, H-9 5/8, BP-DNP, SS-4.41).
