Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 82.35 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Raekwon Davis


Gervon Dexter Sr. is a long, massive defensive tackle. He has effortless power and anchoring against double teams, although his height hurts some of his natural ability to plant roots. He bench presses well, and when he's freed to rush upfield, he shows deceptive athleticism for his size. He was mostly utilized as a block-eater/two-gap type in college. He's good, not great -- but with high-end flashes -- as a block-shedder, and his tackling radius is large. He won't be a big pressure guy in the NFL, and he's not a dominant, ultra-reliable run-defender. Still, he's undoubtedly a very difficult body to move, and his length and flashes of athleticism make him an intriguing prospect.


  • Long, very big defensive tackle
  • Enguling tackling radius, can exert energy in short bursts to close on RBs in a hurry
  • Two-gapping abiltiy is a plus
  • Serious bull-rush talent


  • Needs to improve his pad level to not get outleveraged as often
  • Has minimal pass-rush ability
  • Not a consistent block-defeater against the run
