Overview

Bequette has been a strong player for Arkansas, though his productivity can be attributed less to great athletic ability than competitiveness and intelligence. He stands out as a leader and high-energy player for the Razorbacks. He possesses the strength to rush and set the edge and hold his ground in the run game, where he can battle well against bigger linemen and chase hard until the end of the play. He is a solid tackler once around the ball, and pursues plays from the backside with high effort and consistency. His versatility across the line gives him good value for NFL teams, especially those running a 3-4. Look for him to be a late-round selection for a team looking for versatility and run support along its defensive line.

Analysis

Strengths

Bequette is a strong run defender. He can set the edge well and fight off blocks. He shows up at the end of plays as a high-effort player. His size and length will be assets when tackling ball carriers at the next level. Bequette also runs well for his size, which allows him to close on ball carriers.

Weaknesses

Bequette is not the greatest athlete for his size and often gets lost when double-teamed. While strong in the run game, he is seldom a factor in the passing game. He needs to improve his rush technique and hands to be able to get through blocks and into the pocket. Bequette rarely plays to his timed speed.
