Round 7 - Phil Hoskins - DT - Kentucky


Recommended Posts

 

Overview
Despite just a single season as a starter at Kentucky, Haskins is an interesting study as a prospect whose playing style doesn't necessarily match his traits. His 83 3/8-inch wingspan (34 3/8-inch arms) will get teams excited and he has good overall size to go with it. However, his playing style leans more to his snap quickness than his length, as he's much more consistent at searching for gaps than controlling the action with his hands. He's nimble and very active in both the run game and as a rusher, and his spin-counter is a legitimate weapon in attacking the pocket. If he can get his hands and feet to work in skilled harmony, he might have life as a rotational 3-technique in a one-gapping front.
Strengths
  • Good size and length.
  • Wingspan is almost seven feet long.
  • Gets it going very quickly after the snap.
  • Active and plays hard through the whistle.
  • Ability to dart into gaps and create disruption.
  • Nimble on his feet.
  • Creates problems inside the pocket with his spin counter.
  • Feet always moving forward and looking for a rush edge.
Weaknesses
  • Disappointing bench press total of 20 at his pro day.
  • Plays fast, but can be a little out of control.
  • Struggles with his technique.
  • Inconsistent hand usage in taking on blocks.
  • Can be knocked to the ground by power.
  • Pass rush wears down as game progresses.
  • Needs to create a plan for early stages of the rush.

I am happy with this.  As I look back over my mock, It is uncanny how I missed on every pick.  But that was intentional.

Next year you'll know to go off the Rhule Against Slowness scale for the first 5 rounds - then just throw poo at a wall for the rest of your picks.

Having a 7 foot wing span i would expect his bench too be lower then his peers.. 

In Rhule I trust 

 

Plus a few shoulder surgeries.  Hard to bench in a sling.
