2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about VERNON BUTLER: Louisiana Tech, 6035 323 5.31. Two-year starter from Summit, MS. Named to the All-Conference USA first team. A big man with long arms and strong hands for the position. Played all along the defensive front for Tech. Has some first step quickness and lateral moves to make plays away from the line of scrimmage. Can control the inside running lanes with his dominant style of play if he stays low. Can be disruptive if he hits a crease on the move. Flashes some explosiveness when tackling at times. A bull rusher who can press the pocket. Needs to improve his use of hands as a pass rusher. Will need to work on his technique to elevate his ability to rush the passer on Sundays. Good upper body strength to stack the run at him. A good effort player who will finish long pursuit. An eventual starter with developmental time. Senior Bowl notes: Demonstrated power with an excellent first step. Long arms and active hands. Good feet and balance. Was productive during the week with a good effort off the snap. Good power rush move in one-on-one drills. 2015 stats: 50 T, 10 TFL, 3 sacks, 2 PBU, 1 FF, 1 FR. Edge speed:left 2.14, right 2.21.
