Analysis: Haason Reddick is undersized by NFL standards for the position he’s currently playing. Labors to disengage once size is on top of him. Will need more play strength to ward off NFL blockers. Improving with hands, but needs to continue technique work to control blockers. Lacks necessary bulk, length, and play strength to set a strong edge as an NFL 3-4 outside linebacker. Pass rush reliant upon athletic talent and cursory hand play. Needs more diversified rush plans. Missed 16 tackles over final two seasons at Temple. Needs to chest-up and run feet through contact. Played in fewer than 70 percent of team’s defensive snaps.
