Featured Prospects

Selected by: Kansas City Chiefs
Round: 3
Pick (Overall): 22 (86)

Pick Analysis: The Chiefs pick up a versatile frontline player with the addition of Bailey. He has played defensive end and tackle during his career at Miami but looks like a solid five-technique with the Chiefs. He will be counted on to add some juice and playmaking to the defense as a rotational player.

Overview

Bailey could occupy a few different roles in a 4-3 defense. May find a home as a strong side end or at defensive tackle and certainly provides a coordinator the versatility to move him around. Uses his hands, power moves and good get off to pressure the passer. Very complete against the run. Holds his base very well, gets off blocks, fights through double teams and is a sure tackler when arriving at the ball-carrier. Shows sound awareness and positioning on the field. Relentless in pursuit either from the backside or down the field. Bailey's a probable first round pick.


Strengths

Bailey possesses an excellent physique and good speed. Has good initial quickness and a variety of power moves to rush the passer. Can hold up at the point of attack. Low and quick out of his stance. Keeps lineman away from his body and maintains two-gap responsibilities. Instinctive, versatile and has a good motor.

Weaknesses

Bit of a defensive end / defensive tackle 'tweener. Does not consistently get offensive tackles' shoulders turned when coming off the edge. Won't require a double-team in the passing game. Doesn't have the size or pure bulk of a natural two-gap plugger. Suffered a back injury in high school.

Grade

7.0
