Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TAVEN BRYAN: Florida, 6050 291 5.05. Junior entry from Casper, WY. After a three year career on the field that saw him start 13 total games, Bryan was one of the surprise entries initially. Upon further review, the dynamic athletic skill set at a very respectable size for interior defenders fits in well with the multi-look defensive fronts of the NFL. A son of a former Navy SEAL, Bryan plays the game as hard as anyone on the field at any given point. His initial pop out of his stance is quick and violent. Gets into the blocker before he is set up, consistently earning that advantage upon engagement. Has easy bend in his lower body, allowing him to play low and fast, making very tough for a blocker to get his hands on accurately. Has developed rush moves to rely on when he needs them. Quick to read and react. He excels at adjusting on the fly. Once in space he can outrun almost every interior defensive lineman in this draft. Has the movement ability of a tight end and will pursue to the sidelines with reckless abandon. When it comes to defending the inside run, he can be moved by power blockers. Struggles to maintain his ground as a stay at home defender. Doesn’t have the body type for every down duty inside. For a team looking for more athleticism inside but doesn’t give up everything in the size and strength department, Bryan can be their guy. His motor and ability to make pass blockers uncomfortable will be sought after, but he may not be an every-down guy. 2017 stats: 40 T, 6 TFL, 4 sacks, 3 QBH. Edge speed:left 1.85, right 1.90. OSR:3/22. Second/third round. (A-32 3/4, H-9 3/4, BP-30, 10-1.73).
