Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about NATE ORCHARD: Utah, 6032 251 4.80. Three-year starter from Salt Lake City, UT. Quick with hands. Good read step playing over the tight end. Sometimes lazy with his feet relying on his powerful upper body when taking on a tight end. Explosive attacking blocks, controlling the blocker and shedding. Redirects well off a block. Does a good job rushing the passer with his hand on the ground. He shows the ability to get around the corner with power and speed. An interesting hybrid that does not look totally out of place at linebacker like many that have come before him. He has good playing speed to close in coverage and chase. Has decent agility and made some good inline reads. Very little time backed off in his career but did a good job controlling the tight end with his hands and pad level. Good shed technique keeping hands inside with a good jolt, separation and shed. Improving in man coverage and needs better zone awareness but showed improvement during the Senior Bowl week. With his hand on the ground showed a quick first step and a burst off the ball. Has the speed and quickness to turn the corner as a pass rusher. Uses hands well but lacks the ideal bulk of a pro defensive end. Has a definite upside as a 3-4 outside linebacker that could play every down. Good motor and hustle. 2014 stats: 84 T, 21 TFL, 18.5 sacks, 2 QBH, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 2.18, right 2.19. OSR:22/31 for DE. No lifting, left shoulder. Third/fourth round. (A-33 3/4, H-10 1/8, BP-23, SS-4.43).
