Quincy Roche Scouting Profile

"Sudden, quick handed, arc runner flashes but gets bullied vs power and isn't explosive enough to win with sheer athleticism."


Strengths:

Sudden, quick handed edge rusher with range. Jumps the snap and can win with quickness inside and out. Flashes quick hands to beat tackles.


Can run the arc and bend to the QB. Solid tackler in space. Has a burst to the ball dropping in zone.

Weaknesses:

A liability vs the run. Not strong enough in his hands and can get rag dolled at the point. Not a factor as a rusher if his quickness is canceled. Tight, narrow hips and struggles to anchor.

Overall:

Roche is quick off the edge with the bend-ability to run the arc. He's got quick hands and enough counters to be a factor vs slow footed lineman. But his kryptonite is power and technique.


He can get bullied vs power and isn't explosive enough to win with sheer athleticism vs sound technique. He's a edge linebacker at the next level but doesn't have a great deal of experience playing in space.
