2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about AIDAN HUTCHINSON:

Michigan, 6065 260 4.74. Three-year starter, Plymouth, MI. Earned first-team All-America honors in 2021 and the Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year Award. Also won the Ted Hendricks Award and Lott IMPACT Trophy. First-team All-Big 10 in 2021. Son of former 1992 Wolverine MVP Chris, developed into a dominant player from humble beginnings and appears to be only getting started. The physical traits like strength, quickness, and flexibility have steadily improved year after year. The techniques are pro caliber, the understanding of the game is advanced, and the grit that carries over snap to snap, week to week will create a difference maker at the next level. Long and tall frame that can tower over action and opponents. Plays with range both from a phone-booth perspective and open-space perspective. All over the field and has a natural gravitation toward the action. Nose for the ball. Combines refined hand techniques with elite upper body strength and a twitchy movement to get off blocks. Footwork is repeatable. Has a variety of rush moves and strategies to make his way to the passer. Tremendous lower body flexibility and stability. Can put himself in an array of positions while maintaining his top speed and quickness. Natural bender with tremendous lockout strength. High production against both the run and pass and capable of lining up in multiple spots. Questionable initial burst up the edge. Doesn’t have a high win-rate when attacking the outside shoulder. Will lose track of his base at times, playing narrow and tall. Lower body plays high-hipped partially because of his anatomy, partially because of a lack of sheer strength. Small calves and disproportionate muscle throughout his frame. Lateral movement looks tight and manufactured, not natural when it comes to reactions. The tool set and explosion may not be top tier, but his versatility and constant impact on the game will be.

2021 stats: 62 T, 16.5 TFL, 14 sacks, 3 PBU, 12 QBH, 2 FF. Edge speed:left 1.96, right 1.69. OSR:4/36. First round. (A-32 1/8, H-10 1/4, BP-28, 10-1.60).
