Overview

Troup was a productive three-year starter for the Central Florida defense. He is a short, bulky interior defender who flashes initial quickness in the middle. He shows natural power to hold the point versus the run as well as push the pocket as a pass rusher. He needs to expand his pass-rush package with more counter moves. He lacks range outside the tackle box and can be inconsistent to shed blockers quickly. Troup will fit best as a nose tackle in a 3-4 defensive scheme with enough tools to develop.

Analysis

Strengths

Thickly built kid who is difficult to move off the ball and anchors well versus the run. Has a quick first step and collapses the pocket with a powerful bull rush. Possesses an effective swim move and uses his hands well to shed blocks. Fierce competitor who shows a mean streak.

Weaknesses

A bit on the short side and will not bat down many passes. Loses the ball at times and twitches at the line, causing him to lose balance at the snap. Lacks lateral range and does not always take proper pursuit angles. Not overly fluid and struggles to utilize double moves and consistently get after the quarterback.
