4-7 Round Day 3


Carl Nassib Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Elite height. Enormous frame with a ton of space to add bulk to already impressive build. Put together like a college hybrid edge. Has played variety of spots for perennial Texas 4A D-II state title contender, including off-ball LB, standing edge, and traditional end. Also ample snaps at tight end, especially as a senior. Provided outstanding defensive production and the occasional big-play splash on offense when healthy. Frame potential suggests possibility to fit multiple positions in varying schemes. Flashes quick get-off with terrific closing speed in pursuit. Dangerous from the backside. Fairly fluid as a rusher, bends pretty well relative to height/length, and runs the arc naturally. Arrives with a purpose and can provide the big hit. Comes from a strong 4A TXHSFB program with ample big-game experience. High-cut and struggles maintaining pad leverage at times. Natural arc-runner but must become more violent at point of attack and add nuance to pass-rush arsenal. Heavier, physical linemen can get inside his length and neutralize his athleticism. Playmaking drive sometimes runs him out of plays. Durability is a concern; suffered two significant season-ending injuries: ACL as a sophomore and ankle as a senior. Long-term positional home is somewhat of a question mark given unique play style/frame potential combo. Raw but naturally gifted, toolsy defensive end with a very high ceiling. Could become impact defensive end/edge player at the high-major level. Owns long-term NFL Draft potential with a ceiling in the top half.
