Pick Analysis: Lorig is very intelligent and tough. He struggled some with injuries, but becomes the latest defensive lineman Tampa Bay has drafted in an effort to return to the dominating defense it had through much of the past decade.

Overview

Lorig possesses the size, strength and motor to develop into a possible reserve at the next level. However, his lack of athleticism and overall instincts will make it very tough for him to crack a starting lineup. Lorig projects as a late-round pick or free-agent developmental project.


Strengths

Tall enough with a thick and muscular build. Strong bull rusher who stays low to get underneath blockers' pads. Very disruptive in the running game with good first step and punch. Competitive player who fights to the whistle every play.

Weaknesses

Does not have the balance, fluidity and flexibility to get around the edge. Average speed and limited range prevents him from getting a consistent pass rush. Stays too high and struggles to move laterally, making him a liability in space. Lacks adequate awareness and too often fails to locate the ball carrier.

Grade

2.1
