Overview

Levingston has some redeeming qualities but does not have the athleticism or strength to become an NFL starter. Potential backup 4-3 strong side end or 5-technique in a 3-4. Provides some value as a straight-line bull rusher and anchoring against the run. Does not have the speed and range to consistently get to the quarterback or pursue hard from the backside. Not strong enough to consistently take on the double team or dominate at the point of attack in one-on-one situations. Not a guy you want playing out in space or in coverage. Levington's likely a rookie free agent prospect.


Strengths

Levingston has good size for a defensive end prospect. Flashes the ability to push the pocket some with the bull rush. Against the run, comes off the ball pretty well with some power and maintains sound positioning. Can make a play out on the perimeter. Plays with pretty good intensity.

Weaknesses

Doesn't possess the burst to get the edge and close on the quarterback. Can be blown off the ball by the double team. Struggles to get off blocks. Hands are not active enough while trying to disengage against the run and while pass rushing. Not comfortable dropping into coverage. Awareness is not up to par.

Grade

2.0
