Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CHRISTIAN COVINGTON: Rice, 6023 289 5.10. Junior entry and three-year starter from Vancouver, British Columbia. Has a lean build and good speed. Lacks the lateral movement and balance required to be a two gap player and is more of a one gap slant guy. Plays with urgency and is a load to handle. Does a nice job of slicing through the line and being an inside pressure threat. Shows the ability to be a three technique one gap player. Has a quick burst off the ball to make the first point of contact and explode into his opponent. Shows good instincts to react to blocking schemes, recognizing the play and putting himself in position. Shows a strong bull rush, using upper body power and playing with intensity. Pressures the middle of the field, gets upfield in a hurry. Good strength and knee bend enables him to push the pocket. Has a powerful punch. Quickness with his slant moves, using a rip move to penetrate the pocket. Stays in his rushing lane. Stands up off the snap, lacks ideal playing level and the use of leverage when dealing with blockers. Too often, he gets locked up with blockers and allows the play to clear. Has a hard time disengaging. Has trouble finding the ball at times. Will stop his feet rather than driving through or sliding laterally past. Struggles with balance and change of direction. Had knee surgery after the 8th game. 2014 stats: 20 T, 3.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 1 QBH. Medical exclusion at Combine, left knee. Seventh round/PFA. (A-33 1/4, H-10, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
