Strengths

Curry is quick off the ball when he is focused on rushing the passer, and he can set up tackles nicely by leaning them one way and dipping the opposite. He understands how to set up and work his moves throughout the duration of the game to continue to get into the backfield and rush a quarterback. Once he gets a lane, he shows an amazing burst to finish the play and get to the quarterback. On run plays and against quarterbacks alike he is reliable once to the ball and can be explosive when meeting a ball carrier. He has polished technique at the position and uses his hand well to keep blockers at bay. Although he gives up size to NFL-caliber offensive linemen, he is able to hold his ground and set the edge when necessary to allow his linebackers to make plays. His natural athletic ability is evident and the key to every play that he makes.

Weaknesses

Curry can struggle at times and look out of place in the run game. He understands his role in the defense, but once engaged he has a difficult time getting in on any action, as he has trouble locating the ball. If the play does not come to him right away from his quickness and ability, he has yet to show that he has the instincts to react and be involved late in the play once it is already away from him.
