Full DeAngelo Tyson News Wire
Positives: Possesses a square build conducive to playing inside in either the 3-4 or 4-3 alignment or even outside for an odd man front. Good strength and use of leverage at the point of attack. Flashes a quick jolt to rock the offensive lineman back onto his heels, as well as the strength for the drag down tackle in the hole. Gives good effort laterally. No non-sense type who takes his job seriously. Emerged as a leader and was voted a team captain.
Negatives: Limited to a power scheme as he has only average overall athletiicsm and doesn't locate the football well. Offers litle in terms of a pass rush. Struggles to close even when he has a lane and is too stiff in the hips to change directions quickly. Too often can be fooled with misdirection and screens. Missed three games in 2011 with injuries (back, high ankle sprain) and wasn't as effective onthe edge as a 3-4 defesive end as a senior as he was inside at nose gurd earlier in his career.
