Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DANTE FOWLER JR: Florida, 6025 261 4.56. Two-year starter from St. Petersburg, FL. Uses his athleticism, burst, and playing speed to defeat blockers. Athletic player with positional versatility. Has lined up in a two point stance, working as a stand-up linebacker as well as defensive end. Plays with aggression, rallies his teammates and often sparks momentum for his squad. Playmaker who explodes through his legs to blow up the play. Shows physicality and power, destroying ball carriers. A special talent who has the ability to shine as a three down outside linebacker/defensive end. Wide strong foundation, uses his size and strength to effectively set the edge. Has long arms to hold onto blockers and maintain his ground. Good acceleration off the snap. Uses a strong bull rush and a functional spin move to get past blockers. Works well laterally, shifts sideways and slants hard. Good speed and aggression to slice his gap and disrupt the play. Has a strong punch to jar blockers and release past them. Awareness to hit the corner hard and flatten down the line to make the tackle. Covers a large area with his size, wing span, quickness, and burst. Clutch when the game is on the line. Loses leverage upon contact at times. Works too high. Could improve his hip flexibility and strength to maintain a lower position. Lacks technique with his hand work, uses his natural physical ability over the fundamentals. Has a hard time disengaging once opposing linemen have position. 2014 stats: 60 T, 15 TFL, 8.5 sacks, 17 QBH, 2 FF. Edge speed:left 2.01, right 2.08. OSR:10/31 for DE. First round.
