DeMarvin Leal Scouting Report

"Tweener that lacks ideal explosiveness outside and power inside. Traits will boost his draft stock but finding a niche might be elusive."

 

Strengths:

Thick, inside/outside runner with a motor. Pursues well, easy change of direction for his size, and has a closing burst. Shows power, comes off blocks, and pursues through contact. Flashes strong hands.

 

Weaknesses:

Tweener that lacks ideal explosiveness off the edge and power inside. Rooted out and blocked when he's squared up. Blasted away by the double.

 

Overall:

Leal looks more comfortable and productive at DE but doesn't have terrific get off. He's built like a DT but could be a liability inside on early downs. His size, motor and flashes of strength are intriguing but he doesn't consistently play like a beast. His traits will help his draft stock but finding his niche might be elusive.
