Jabaal Sheard

Jabaal Sheard
NFL Draft Scouting Report

Defensive End

Pittsburgh


College Position: Defensive End
School: Pittsburgh
Grade: Senior
Height: 6-4
Weight: 260
Birthdate: 05-10-1989
Draft Projection: Second
Overall Rank: Unranked
NFL Draft Position (Rank): Defensive End (10)
3-4 Linebacker (7)

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Cleveland Browns in the 2nd round with the #5 pick.
For a team transitioning to a 4-3, they were in desperate need of a pass rushing defensive end, and Sheard had a very successful season in 2010. He's a tough bull rusher who made a lot of plays for the Pitt Panthers last season and will likely see early playing time.

Strengths

  • Natural corner turner, rounds off the tackle at great angles.
  • Solid body control, doesn't lose himself athletically.
  • Shows consistent success when bull rushing, still looks like he could add some lower power.
  • Shined when star DE Greg Romeus went down, earning the Big East DPOY award
  • Really exploits bad footwork with the classic outside swim
  • Efficient first step thats going to help him contribute day one
  • Showed dramatic improvement fron 2009 to 2010, great sign
  

Weaknesses

  • One trick pony at times, tends to rely on the outside swim/step move
  • Inconsistent motor, seems to give up when he loses sight of the ball
  • Character concerns, saw reports of him being arrested for a brawl on campus
  • Three point stance seems to be poor, weight looks to be alittle to far back
  • Struggled with the long arms of Orlando Franklin (OT, Miami)
  • Needs to focus on winning that hand battle
  • A little undersized to play in 4-3, not athletic enough to play rush linebacker
