Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about PORTER GUSTIN: Southern Cal, 6044 255 4.69. Three year starter from Elk Ridge, UT. High motor player with good length and size for an outside linebacker/edge defender. Played primarily on the edge in a two-point stance but occasionally played in a three-point stance or backed off inside. Physical at the point of attack with powerful hand and arm usage to separate from and shed blockers. Tough to get around the corner against him. He keeps ball side leverage on blocks and has outstanding effort to close on a ball carrier on the perimeter. Disciplined playing the backside run and his non-stop effort gets him in on cutbacks and plays across and downfield. Effective on inside stunts creating issues for blocking schemes. Has a series of pass rush moves and flashes the ability to escape with a spin move, arm under and over. Not often used in coverage but was hesitant in his drop and was rarely a factor. Some hip tightness and lacks a dynamic change of direction. At times gets hung up and takes false steps. A little awkward in some movements and there were times he was upright on contact. A little slow with his hands and can be slow getting into a move or shed. Has decent speed. Was inconsistent to bend around the corner to make a play. A lot of his sacks and tackles for a loss were the result of second effort. Missed time the last two seasons with injuries. Has special teams potential. He may have a limited ceiling but should contribute as a backup. Projects as a 3-4 rush linebacker. 2018 stats: 28 T, 10 TFL, 7 sacks, 1 PBU, 3 QBH. Edge speed:left 2.15, right 2.09. OSR:7/31. Fifth/sixth round. (A-33, H-10, BP-31, SS-DNP).
