Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Calhoun has a fluid lower body and bends well off the edge with natural flexibility to curve the arc. He is coordinated in space to easily change directions and keeps his feet well, protecting against cut blocks. Does an excellent job playing the edges and holding contain. Does a nice job using his length to jolt blockers.

WEAKNESSES: Calhoun isn't as strong as he looks right now and is missing a power element to his game as he's too easily slowed or stonewalled at contact. He loses the leverage battle too often and his ball awareness tends to run hot/cold. His snap anticipation and technique are both underdeveloped.

Calhoun isn't yet a polished product and his hand use needs coached up to improve his shed technique and rush ability.

He shows a lot of promise as a future early draft pick if he can continue to develop as a junior.

--Dane Brugler (9/5/14)

Player Overview

In 2013 Michigan State was forced to replace their top pass rusher (William Gholston) and Calhoun stepped up to the task in his first year as a starter, leading the Spartans with 14.0 tackles for loss and 18 quarterback hurries. He finished the 2013 campaign as the Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the year and garnered several All-American votes.
