2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about JEFFREY GUNTER:
Coastal Carolina, 6043 258 4.70. Three-year starter, Durham, NC. Second-team All-Sun Belt Conference last fall, two-time first-team in 2018 and 2020. Fits best as a standup edge defender in the NFL. Very good height and weight, thick upper body with a well-built lower body. Solid burst off the line of scrimmage, needs to eliminate false steps. Very good physical toughness upon engagement, lands a significant strike and wins leverage, needs more consistent hand placement upon engagement and to work his hands inside when he loses leverage. Versus the run does a solid job setting the edge and anchoring down. Occasionally gave up contain and allowed explosive plays which needed to be eliminated. Ends up on the ground too often when inserting inside offensive line, and when chipped. Versus the pass, upon engagement uses functional strength to drive back offensive linemen in pass rush and will win with power. Active hands in pass rush. Solid overall athleticism, asked to stunt often in college and succeeded using agility and a plethora of pass rush moves. Limited coverage snaps, raw in this area. A good developmental prospect.
