Tarell Basham NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’4 269lbs
- Long arms
- Strong hands
- High motor
Analysis: Tarell Basham possesses an NFL-ready build including long arms and big, strong hands. Shows flashes of explosive twitch in his attack upfield. Able to dislodge a tackle’s anchor with his speed-to-power move. Plays with good short area burst to close out running backs and scrambling quarterbacks. Maintains functional motor to keep looking for tackles outside of his general area. He was asked to drop into space at Ohio and showed enough athletic ability to handle it.
- Hip tightness
- Basic pass-rush moves
- Doesn’t utilize hands enough
Analysis: Basham plays with tightness in his hips which restricts his bend and pad level. Straight-line attacker who will roll past his target if he doesn’t gather his weight early. His pass rush attack is still basic. He has strong hands but they are useless if they aren’t used often, which is the case with Basham. He tries to bull his way around the edge with strong lower body rather than softening edge with his hands. Needs to develop a better plan with reliable counters to beat pro tackles. Lacks smoothness in his turn around the corner. Can still get more out of his long arms.
