Overview

Basped is a big, strong athlete with growth potential. He runs well and has great range for his size, but he needs lots of technique work as both a pass rusher and run defender. He flashes quickness and upfield pass rush ability, but he needs to expand his hand use and counter moves. Basped has been inconsistent to feel pad pressure and react quickly as plays develop. He plays hard and will make plays from the backside but loses leverage too often on the edge. Basped has the size, growth potential and raw athleticism to develop into a solid NFL defender, but he will need time to hone his overall game.


Strengths

Basped has great height and a large frame to add more bulk. Good burst and speed to get after the quarterback off the edge and make tackles from the backside. Moves well laterally and is fluid enough to drop in zone blitzes. Never takes plays off and fights to the whistle.

Weaknesses

A second slow in reacting to the play. Stands up too tall and lets blockers get underneath his pads. Extremely raw with his hand placement and lacks a repertoire of pass-rush moves. Does not possess adequate footwork, taking too many false steps.

Grade

3.9
