Scouting Report

Evaluated 02/11/2022

BrianDohn
Brian Dohn National Recruiting Analyst

Verified size with nearly 80-inch wing span. High-level athlete with versatility as defensive end or interior defensive lineman. Has frame to play at 250 pounds or bulk up to 280. Brother of NFL offensive lineman Badara Traore. Missed much of junior season with foot injury. Sophomore season limited to four games because of pandemic so plenty of room for development. Shows twitch in firing off ball. Stays low and explodes up and into offensive lineman. Lower body flexibility allows for shoulder dip to gain edge. Effective in back side pursuit. Demonstrates body control in 1-on-1 tackling situations in space. Changes direction well. Shows some stack-and-shed ability. Has to continue to develop upper body strength. Relies heavily on speed so needs to work on technique, particularly with hands, and ability to get inside. All-conference potential at Power 5 level. Early round NFL draft potential.

Athletic Background

2019: Played both ways at TE and OLB as a freshman.
