Overview

Casey is not the most impressive player on the hoof, but he has the strength and foot quickness to develop into a disruptive force at the next level. His stocky build and lower body strength make him very difficult to move out of holes, and he uses his quick hands to effectively shed blockers. He is not a refined pass rusher, but he has a relentless motor and will become more effective with improved hand placement and technique. Casey is not athletic enough to be a three-technique at the next level, but he is a great run stopper and should be an early second-day pick.


Strengths

Casey is thickly built with good speed. Quick off the ball, plays with good leverage and anchors against the run. Utilizes a strong punch to knock offensive lineman back on their heels and has fast hands to quickly disengage. Powerful bull rusher that can collapse the pocket. Flashes the ability to make tackles in space.

Weaknesses

A bit on the short side and struggles to get his hands inside the blocker's pads. Lacks the ability to anticipate the snap and is a step late on occasion. Does not show a repertoire of pass rushing counter moves and lacks a closing burst. Tires quickly and must work on his physique and stamina.

Grade

7.5
