2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State

Crichton looks like an ideal 4-3 DE at the next level. He has adequate size and a nice burst coming off the edge. He has some limited experience playing inside, so there is a long-term potential for him to grow into a 3-4 DE, assuming he adds the necessary weight over the coming years.

An excellent anchor at the end of the line. Doesn't penetrate into the backfield often enough, but strong enough to not be pushed around and hold down his assignments. Good, but not great first step burst off the snap. Really good hand use and ability to disengage from blockers. Above-average speed, but certainly not a guy who will need to rely solely on a speed rush. Uses hands to his advantage and will punch into the chest to create separation.

Stays on assignment. Good vision and ability to change directions using a variety of pass-rush moves. Good back/waist bend when hitting the edge rush. Extremely physical and aggressive. Average motor for a full game. Doesn't give up on plays and shows a good backside pursuit. Above-average ability to weave through traffic to make a play on the ball.

Crichton projects as an early second round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Prediction: 3rd Round

Aggressive, uses hands well, and strong effort. Will go early in 3rd round because he lacks speed rush and elusiveness as a pass rusher. Lacks prototypical (preferred) size for 1st or 2nd round pick
