Anybody ever heard of Hamilcar Rashed. He plays for Oklahoma State. Has 14 sacks on the season and 22 TFls and plays OLB at 6'4". He is #2 is sacks and TFLs only behind Chase Young.
Other names that are in the top 10 for both sacks and TFLs are Zack Baun, Qunicy Roche( temple) and Alex Higsmith ( Carolina) . I am a big fan of Zack Baun. The other 2 I have no idea but might good players.
Surprised nobody is talking about 6'3 255lb Curtis Weaver from Boise St. Here is some stuff I found from thedraftnetwork.com
Thick frame with a powerful base and natural leverage to present a strong anchor against the run. Is rarely reach blocked successfully due to his strong initial step and solid anchor. Explosive off the ball with an upfield, disruptive approach, as well as low and hot pads. Regularly the first to initiate hands off the ball and knows his leverage points to attack: regularly gets to a half-man relationship by disengaging OL punch at elbows or armpits. Upper body power is snappy and explosive and regularly creates displacement. Surprisingly slippery; smart getting his shoulders turned into gaps and slipping through tight alleys to generate pressure.
First step quickness and stride length pops, enabling him to establish a half man relationship and work to soften the outside edge track. Does well to reduce, tilt, flatten and work around the outside hip of offensive tackles. Hands are active, heavy and he does a great job of keeping his pads clean. Can line up in a variety of alignments and win as a pass rusher and run defender. Rushes with a plan, showcasing an expansive array of moves to get home. Executes with good timing.
Extremely productive player already during his two years at Boise State. Weaver does not have a body type that would make you think he would be a consistent backfield player, especially using speed as much as he does. But a great jump on the snap, fast violent hands and an understanding of blocking schemes makes him a very productive rusher, even with a thicker frame.
He has true positional flexibility and schematic versatility. In an odd front scheme he is the prototypical ¾ OB. In an even front scheme, he can play with his hand down and displays better get off when rushing from a “down” position. In an odd front scheme he has sufficient pop in his hands to play on the strong side, but probably better suited on the weak side. He displays sufficient “get-off” off the LOS. He is a good pass rusher that has also shown sufficient ability to drop and play in space. He is slippery on the interior and has shown the ability to bend and get the edge and displays good closing quickness to get home. He has shown instances of setting the edge but need to improve his consistency in this regard.
Well above average arm length that he uses to extend and quickly shed at the point of attack. Longer than normal reach allows him to remain clean and detach when able to maintain inside leverage. Utilizes an effective array of moves that he’s grown to become comfortable with. Swift swim moves and arm overs are his go to techniques when attacking the middle of blockers. When able to win the corner, he’s executes a club-rip to help wipe blockers hands clean and get home to the quarterback.
Has operated as a stand up outside linebacker and slid inside during third-and-long situations as well as obvious passing downs. Shown to be effective in many spots and proved to be a useful chess piece in many different fronts and blitzes. Comfortable with dropping in coverage and turns his head to drop into spots while analyzing routes being ran in and out of his designated areas.
Sheesh -- is his get-off good! When he coils into obvious passing situations and commits himself to attacking around the arc, Weaver provides ample burst and twitch to get up-field and gain ground. His hands compliment his length -- he's not super long but shows good timing and placement on the counters at his disposal to pop off hands. Really effective in rip/dip combination and he also brings an inside spin and a really nice inside swim to the table. He's physically stout -- a dense defender who has notable oomph to his anchor and will collapse skill players tasked with blocking him. I like his versatility, Weaver can win inside or outside depending on down and distance combinations as both a pass and run defender.
With an explosive first-step, Robinson is still in the beginner stages of figuring things out on the edge. The tools already present in the toolshed are intriguing, but there are lots of ingredients that need to be added in order for him to reach the next levels of his potential. The clay is there to be sculpted and there’s already a sharp start to it.
When able to operate from an open surface, his eyes, hand, and feet always work in a synchronized pattern. With plenty of juice off of the line, while freeze framing and staying on his direct line up the field, his eyes are able to decipher the pass set of blockers and it immediately transitions his speed to power by executing certain hand tactics to help give access or an easier pathway to throwers.
Looks like an NFL edge defender. Possesses prototypical size, length, power, and explosiveness. Physical gifts are in abundance. Knows how to maximize his length both as a pass rusher and run defender. Has a good understanding of gap discipline. Flashes impressive set-up moves with strong, active hands... constantly tries to stack together a couple of moves in his rush attack. Has decent amount of bend and short-area agility for his size to dip and flatten around the corner. Double-digit sack production in 2018.
Was a highly-recruited player out of the state of Texas before a potential second-degree felony charge in high school for stealing someone’s cell phone dropped all scholarships. Went the JUCO route, then landed at Syracuse where he has proved to be one of the top speed rushers in the country.
Robinson is a smart football player who does not get fooled twice very often. Speed rushing is his game, and it lines up well with what the NFL likes. He shows good burst off the snap and combines that with adequate bend around the edge. Gets productivity out of his talents and has a knack for being in the backfield from a 3-point stance.
Ticks every measurable box that you can find. Long stride and long arms with good mass throughout. Has a great first step that maximizes both snap anticipation and initial explosiveness. Effective out of a tilt technique at getting right to an OT’s outside shoulder and putting him to a recovery position within the first two steps. Is developing a swipe and a dip to finish rushes along the outside corner, though more steps are needed there — hand usage generally is coming along nicely, and he understand the timing necessary to soften the outside and inside rush angles. Bend isn’t amazing but it’s more than enough to take outside rushes to the QB’s set point and at least create hurries if not further sacks.
Slapped together nicely with a thick and muscular lower half and long arms. While you can tell he loves to dip and rip, his overall pass rushing arsenal showcases good variety. Does well to engage his hands and use his length to set up moves to disengage and soften rush angles. Quick fist step and he gains ideal depth with his initial steps. Wouldn’t call him overly loose but he can turn and flatten the arc. Fairly sound run defender that does well to diagnose and counter. Has enough power to squeeze gaps and set a firm edge. You can tell the fundamentals come natural to him in terms of jamming tight ends, stepping down, taking on pullers etc..
