Chris Wormley NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’5 298lbs
- Thick frame
- Decent technique
Analysis: Chris Wormley has a thick frame that allows him to hang in the trenches with the behemoths. He is a master of his technique and a natural bender with ease of movement and agility for a man his size. Has experience playing inside and outside. Comes out low and aggressively off snap. Able to generate bullrush with speed-to-power drive into tackles. Hints of arm-over and spin moves as rusher. Balance is excellent; rarely seen on the ground. Able to plow through redirect blocks when charging through gaps. Fairly disciplined in approach. Aware and reactive to jet sweeps and counters. Student of the game and a willing leader.
- Lacks explosive first step
- Better hand usage
- Block shedding
Analysis: Wormley lacks an explosive first step off the snap of the ball. Shows delayed transition into the rush off play fakes. Needs to play with faster hands as pass rusher. His wins vs. blockers tend to be more eventual than sudden. Remains engaged with blockers longer than desired at times. Shedding the blocker will be key for success at the next level. NFL offensive linemen will be better equipped to counter Wormley’s brute power. Needs to bring feet with him and through the tackle. Injuries haven’t been an issue, but did tear his ACL (Aug. 2012), missing all of the 2012 season.
NFL Comparison: Derek Wolfe
Draft Projection: Round 2-3
