Pick Analysis: Selvie had a huge sophomore season followed by injuries and the arrival of Giants first-round prospect Jason Pierre-Paul this season. His stock fell, but he's a tough and competitive kid, who can get after the quarterback.

Overview

George has been the Bulls' most productive defender over the past four seasons. He's quick off the edge and has shown bursts of speed to close in on the football. He is a disruptive player who can penetrate the line of scrimmage as a run defender and pressure the quarterback. George can bend and close to the passer with great agility and balance and pursue from the backside to chase ball carriers. He possesses deceptive strength to collapse the pocket off the edge but is inconsistent holding the point vs. the run. George uses his hands well to leverage blockers and separate to the ball. His instincts, athleticism and motor make him and undersized end that should contribute as a pass rusher and on coverage units (special teams) as a rookie.


Strengths

Selvie was highly productive in college. He's a tough defender who plays bigger than his listed measurables and with a really consistent effort level. Possesses outstanding quickness off the ball and has good agility. Is a really instinctive performer who knows how to use his hands. Displays very polished pass rush ability. Durable.

Weaknesses

Selvie was able to hold up well in college but lacks bulk to hold the point of attack and be a really effective run defender at the next level. Despite his initial quickness, he does not possess the great range you expect to see from a player of his size.

Grade
