Overview

Crawford ended up at Boise State by way of a junior college, proving himself an intriguing prospect after only one year starting for the Broncos at defensive end. He originally from Canada, where he played for a year after high school and prior to attending Bakersfield College. He has a ton of upside considering his play history, and posses prototypical NFL athletic ability and speed on the perfect frame. He can play in various spots across a defensive line and could be plugged in to a number of schemes. He is a bit of a late riser and has second- or third-round value as a developmental prospect with starting traits.

Analysis

Strengths

Crawford is quick to get out of his stance off the snap and has the instincts to slant and hit a gap without being touched. He is consistently disrupting plays in the backfield and is a solid tackler. He is a strong player who shows an explosive arm jolt when keeping blockers at bay. Crawford shows good change of direction when stopping to pursue plays laterally. As a rusher, his motor is the key to his success. He never gives up on a play and can use a strong burst to get to the quarterback. He has a ton of upside, which undoubtedly increases his values to teams who are set at the position and willing to patient and work with him. Despite his size, he could even play special teams early on in his career because he has such a nasty demeanor.

Weaknesses

Crawford is a raw prospect who only has one year of collegiate playing experience at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. He would be a project early on for the team that selects him, and he could have a tough time adapting right away. He has had trouble getting off double teams, which could be a technique issue, a likely possibility given his well-documented strength. Crawford will need extra coaching and attention to adjust to the NFL.
