Default Re: Jeoffrey Pagan, DE

13. JEOFFREY PAGAN | Alabama 6034|310 lbs|3JR 1/27/1992 (age 22)

MEASUREABLES Arm: 33 | Hand: 09 5/8 | Wingspan: 80 5/8
Quote:
STRENGTHS: Packs the muscle on his frame very well, carrying his 300+ pounds easily with a large wingspan…powerful tackler, wrapping and driving through his man, bringing his legs with him…good grip strength to tear at the POA with heavy, active hands…anchors well, keeping his butt low and digging his cleats in to hold his ground…displays closing burst once he sees red and shows examples of the flexibility and body control needed for the position…does a nice job keeping his eyes elevated and tracks the ball well…very strong work ethic and pushed himself in the weight room, adding 50+ pounds since his senior year in high school…versatile and saw snaps at the 0-, 3- and 5-technique spots – played several roles in Alabama’s multiple front.

WEAKNESSES: Limited range and doesn’t show the needed fluidity to consistently make plays away from the LOS…inconsistent snap anticipation and too often was the last to move off the ball…extremely raw as a technician and lacks an ideal understanding of his surroundings…unrefined pass rush arsenal and needs to develop his mechanics as a rusher…late to disengage and needs to refine his hand fundamentals…aggressive intensity seems to come and go, showing some passive qualities and lacking a consistent mean streak at the POA…unimpressive resume and production with only 11 starts under his belt – lackluster career stats: 61 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks…some durability concerns after a serious knee injury in 2010 as a senior in high school – didn’t work out at the NFL Combine due to a left labrum tear and left quad contusion.

SUMMARY: A four-star DE recruit, Pagan had a whirlwind recruitment, originally committing to Florida before switching to Clemson and eventually choosing Alabama. He saw back-up duty as a true freshman and sophomore before finally breaking into the starting line-up as a junior in 2013, finishing with 34 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks. Pagan surprised many when he decided to skip his senior year and could have used another year in college, but the injury risk weighed heavily in his decision. He is a very hot/cold prospect and his highlights make him look like a future 1st round pick, but his impact snap-to-snap leaves a lot to be desired. Pagan shows natural ball awareness, but too often he’s busy hung up on blocks and can’t do anything about it. He has some moldable traits, but is extremely green and needs time and a patient coaching staff to cultivate his raw skills – possesses some untapped potential and should be considered an ascending 5-technique
