2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about VEDERIAN LOWE:
Illinois, 6045 314 5.22. Five-year starter, Rockford, IL. Started all five years because of receiving extra eligibility due to Covid-19. Honorable Mention All-Big 10 the past two seasons. The father of two is highly lauded by coaches and teammates. He also plays with a sense of maturity on the field. The techniques are repeated snap after snap, and it translates to superb body control and reliability. The feet and hands are in complete cohesion with one another, and it is rare to see him abandoning his base. Does not bring a high end of speed or power to the table, but he is a blocker who simply gets the job done. His body type is unique. Does not project to a top-tier status, but he will outplay and outlast players drafted ahead of him. He has things put together so well and his skill set will continue to improve in time. Has a rare wingspan and overall length for a player of his height. Can dance with his hands in pass protection while stepping on all the ants one by one. Consistent balance and control under duress. Shows the ability to recover when initially beat, staying within himself and truly trusting his footwork. Peels off the line to the second level with ease and control. Shows a sudden change of direction without overstepping. Technically advanced. Does not have an elite burst off the ball. Will get beat initially too often. Needs to play with more urgency and aggression. Does not get a consistent push when blocking down the line against tackles. May not have much more physical upside in terms of talent.
OSR:38/51. Fifth/sixth round. (A-35 3/8, H-10 3/8, BP-22, 10-1.80).
