A.J. Epenesa Scouting Report

"College edge rusher that projects more as a rock solid, prototype, 5 technique with his size, dominant hands and fluid maneuverability"


Strengths:

Five technique with good fluidity, strength and technique. Excels with his hands and long arms, sheds and keeps himself free to get to the ball.


Former hoops player that has good overall mobility for his size. Can drop, change direction, bend and get skinny. Holds the edge and isn't easily walked back.

  • Epenesa excels with his handwork. He uses his length to leverage and hands to pull and push where he wants to go.

Weaknesses:

Not a quick twitch guy and likely won't test well. Lacks experience playing inside. Motor can be inconsistent.

Overall:

College edge rusher that projects more as a rock solid, prototype, 5 technique with his size, dominant hands and fluid maneuverability.


Has the strength and leverage to hold up at the point and the fluidity and technique to free up as a pass rusher.


Wins off the edge with technique rather than great initial quickness or explosion. Against an OT technician likely won't be as effective on the edge as a rusher. Projects as a lighter Cam Heyward or slower Cam Jordan.
