Deadrin Senat Draft Profile

Deadrin Senat draft profile

Strengths:

  • Thick, sturdy frame
  • Low center of gravity and powerful base allows him to play under and through redirect blocks once he gets to the edge
  • Has fast-twitch initial hands
  • Punches first into opponent’s shoulders preventing them from capturing his frame
  • Hands can be violent and sudden
  • Shows some two-gap ability as a shade nose
  • Never stops hustling and is willing to chase a tackle opportunity all over the field
  • Features very little wasted motion in his play

Analysis: Deadrin Senat is a short and stout and active interior defender that earned his team’s Defensive MVP award as well as first-team All-American Athletic Conference section in 2017. He took home second-team honors in 2016 where he started 12 of 13 games played that season, making 34 stops, seven for loss, and a sack. The Immokalee, Florida native started 10 games, playing in 12, in 2015 and compiled 18 tackles, 5.5 for loss. As a redshirt freshman, he started two games and played in all 12 (18 tackles). His squatty frame will limit his scheme fit to 4-3 teams looking for a shade nose in all likelihood. Senat is strong and efficient with a big man’s game in a shorter man’s body. While he’s compact in frame, his arm length is decent and he has the hand quickness to win the initial battle to create a leveraged position. Senat’s postseason (including an impressive bowl performance) has a chance to really bolster his stock and push him up the board.

Weaknesses:

  • Lack of length hurts him
  • Will be a non-factor as NFL pass rusher
  • Doesn’t have the big bull rush or the ability to flip around the edge of interior pass protection
  • Block shedding is average at times

Analysis: Deadrin Senat is a run stuffing specialist and will not be asked to rush the passer on a regular basis. Despite his strength, he does not utilize a bull rush or counter moves to get to the quarterback. His block shedding needs work and he tends to stay engaged on his man longer than normal, especially in passing situations. Length is below average for NFL standards.

What the scouts say: “That guy was a handful in Tampa. Watch him in those practices if you can get the tape. Reminded me of what Javon Hargrave did when he was there.” — NFC Director of Scouting
