Draft Scouting Report

Rating: 88.05 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Bud Dupree


Well-built, thick athlete who does a great job of using his hands to soften the edge. Shows an above-average ability to bend at the waist around the corner. Great top-end speed and explosion. Does a good job of containing the edge or dropping into coverage. Has some power in his hands to stack and shed in the run game.


Needs to develop more counter moves and show an ability to pressure linemen inside. Average-to-below-average length. Rotational player who will have to shoulder a larger workload at the next level. Balance was an issue at times this season.

  • Seahawks' Boye Mafe: Takes talents to Pacific Northwest

    The Seahawks selected Mafe in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 40th overall.

    Mafe was a bit of a slow starter at Minnesota, only breaking out in his fourth and fifth seasons, but his production from that point was convincing and his athletic tools are of an uncommon quality. At 6-foot-4, 261 pounds, Mafe logged a 4.53-second 40-yard dash at the combine, adding a 38-inch vertical jump and 125-inch broad jump. While he may need some time to adjust to the NFL level, Mafe's standout athleticism makes him a good bet to get there eventually after producing 11.5 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss over his last 19 collegiate games.
