Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about MALIK CARNEY: North Carolina, 6020 251 4.73. Three year starter from Alexandria VA. Played on the edge in a two-point stance and has some coverage experience, but was primarily an edge run defender and pass rusher. He does have some experience backed off and showed some promise in the post season. Solid effort player that has athletic ability and plays with knee bend. Tough at the point of attack with a powerful lower body and a quick strong punch. Block protection is outstanding with stun, separation and hand usage to shed. Does not stay blocked. Good lateral movement and change of direction. Makes plays in space with fundamental tackling ability. Can lay a hit. Has the range to chase across the field and has another gear to close. Powerful pass rusher with the ability to bull rush a blocker back to the quarterback. Has some pass rush technique with inside moves and a counter. Has bend working around the corner and can finish. While he had limited reps in pass coverage, he shows the ability to drop in the flat and react on the throw. Not extremely quick at the snap and usually does not win the pass rush with initial move and speed. Has to rely on power, technique and ability to close. Will be a little out of control at times and miss a tackle in the backfield. Overall pass rush technique will need development to be a quality NFL starter. Does not have the ideal size of an NFL defensive end but he could project as a versatile 3-4 outside linebacker. Has kick coverage potential and should contribute on special teams. 2018 stats: 60 T, 12.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 4 QBH, 5 FF, 1 FR (1 TD). Edge speed:left 2.02, right 2.29. OSR:18/ 31. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33 3/8, H-9 7/8, BP-25, SS-DNP).
