2013 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Florida vs. South Carolina

South Carolina

#21 Marcus Lattimore, RB
– Makes first appearence late in 1st quarter, despite battling injury
– Good patients and vision off the draw, not much of a hole but able to break a tackle
– Obviously not 100%, doesn’t have the change of direction/burst he normally does, has been used on 3 pass routes and has been covered on all three
– Did do a good job of pass protecting the back side on bootleg, stuck helmet in the chest and over powered blitzer

#36 DJ Swearinger, SAF
– Thick build with big lower body
– Great angle on sweep to right sideline, comes up hard and aggressive, makes solid low tackle
– Gets cut in the open field trying to defend the screen pass
– Has played both cover 2 and the single high safety in man to man
– Takes a poor angle going up to break up the pass and nearly leads to big play
– Good read and closing burst on Gillislee run in the red zone, sticks him at LOS and doesn’t let him go
– Hasn’t been much of a factor today, tough to evaluate his performace today without help from coaches tape

#21 DeVonte Holliman, DB/LB
– Lines up at OLB (Spur), blitzes, unblocked and gets easy sack
– Not much closing burst, can see why he was moved to linebacker from safety
– Perfect coverage in the flat was screen pass, good tackle, wrapped up and drive the feet
– Good read on shovel pass, stayed with responsibility and made nice tackle
– On next play, he gets to Dunbar in the flat, but misses the tackle and it leads to a touch down, did have good zone instincts, recognized the play and was in position, but didn’t make the play
– Has done a nice job keeping outside leverage and setting hard edge vs. stretch/off tackle run
– Gets beaten on wheel route vs. Jordan Reed pass was incomplete

#98 Devin Taylor, DE
– Gets the sack, but not showing much explosion. Performs a so-so rip move and is able to work his way around the edge to the QB.
– Slow first step compared to the other DL in this game
– Doesn’t look real fluid when trying to change direction and turn the corner
-Trap play, gets blocked easily and can’t get off of it, creates hole – just looks slow and stiff
– Not recognizing trap blocks, coming downfield and getting trapped, creating hole
– Not locating the ball at all, comes hard inside and the play goes outside, creating wide open side of the field
– Getting turned and sealed off too easily, he has been pretty bad at the POA today
