Draft Insiders’ – Yearbook Scouting Report

Darnell Savage #4                    5-11      195       Maryland – Sp. 4.45     
  Hindu Theory: Tyrann Mathieu                  Rating 88
Hard-hitting dynamo safety has been the leader of the Terps’ secondary for the past three seasons. Rangy versatile defender developed into a ball hawk, lining up at free safety and also dropping into the nickel defender where he also excelled. Earned first team Big Ten honors along with 2nd team All-American by DraftInsiders.com in 2018. Stepped in as a full-time starter in 2016 as a true sophomore after time as a nickel corner during his true freshman season. Strong compact athlete combines excellent speed, quickness and fluid athleticism with keen instincts to be a three-down defender. Displays the versatility to lineup at a few spots in the sub packages. At times, he seeks to deliver big stops, but is not a violent hitter and his marginal size is a concern related to holding up to the physicality of the game. More a drag down tackler, though reliable especially in the open field where he breaks down well in space. Displays an awesome closing burst, arriving with good pad level to maintain leverage and breakup passes. He has outstanding read-react ability and attacks with an aggressive manner with a motor that knows only one speed. Drives through his target upon contact and able to finish. Lined up in a variety of ways, usually the high safety and slot corner in different alignments. Very effective single-high safety with excellent range to make up ground and get to the ball. Often lined up over a slot receiver, and shows the quick footwork to mirror off the line well with the closing speed to break up passes. Highly versatile with the range and instincts to play free in the deep middle and at times the toughness and run stopping ability to be the eighth man in the box. He has fine instincts for man-coverage with dependable hands to hang on to his interception opportunities. Keeps his head on a swivel in coverage and reacts to the ball quickly. Attacks the throw at the catch point as if he was the receiver. Average height and excellent leaping ability allow him to win jump-ball throws. Plays all facets of the game with a strong sense of urgency. He does however, lack ideal size, especially for a heavy diet of playing in the box. In 2018, started 12 games and had 52 tackles, 5.5 TFL, no sacks, 4 picks and 2 PBU. Earned first team Big Ten honors. In 2017, started 12 games and made 59 tackles, 3 picks and 8 PBU. For his career, totaled 182 tackles with 9 TFL, 8 picks and 14 PBU. Best suited for playing single high scheme. Fine athleticism to be a three-down defender. At the NFL Combine, he came in just under 5’11” and 198 lbs. with 31” arms. He ran a 4.45 time, 11 reps, a 39.5” VL and a 10’6“ BJ with 4.14 shuttle and 7.03 three cone. Excellent positional drills to complete a well-rounded workout. Similar to safety Tyrann Mathieu in natural talent and versatility. Also, for the old draftniks, he is similar to safety Bob Sanders, one of the best defenders in the league during his time with the Colts. He has the speed, quickness and ball skills to be an early starter and compares to Mathieu in size, AA and versatility. Shows flexible hips and quick footwork with the instincts to continue to improve in coverage. Talent to be a difference maker if coupled with a good box safety. High quality athlete and football player with experience to compete for time in different packages and an excellent addition. Probable early starting ability and in addition he could win the nickel role in camp. Valuable versatility with fast developing talent and a three-down defender. Rising marginal top 40 selection with impact talent. Teams like the Giants, Redskins, Cowboys and Chiefs have him on their short list in the early 2nd round.
Draft Projection: 2nd Round

Scouting Report – Defensive Tackle

Khalen Saunders #99   6-1        325       Western Illinois – Sp. 5.0         
   Hindu Theory: Brandon Mebane                    Rating 82
Explosive mobile interior senior has been a disruptive force at the FCS level over his three starting seasons. Three-time MVFC honors with his final season as the DPY honors. His talent did not go unnoticed and earned invitations to both the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine. A prospect that I have scouted extensively since early in his junior season. Dominant tackle in the MVFC which has produced many NFL players. Excellent athlete with natural power and fine short area quickness.  Quick penetrator excelled despite double team blocks regularly. Thick low based defender brings a well-rounded skill set and NFL ability to the table. Legitimate NFL starter in a zero or one-technique role with development. Despite his short arms, he has strong quick hands to explode through gaps and get into the backfield consistently. Finishes with strong tackling, including on the perimeter. Uses his lack of ideal height to his advantage with natural leverage to get under blockers, penetrate and separate. Shows very good initial quickness to threaten gaps and use his powerful punch to jolt blockers. Able to use his strong hands to counter and push off big blockers with his initial thrust. As a pass rusher, he wins on his initial charge and totaled 18 career sacks with 14 over his final two seasons. At times, gets wired to blockers when his initial burst is contained and he can struggle to get sacks late in the down. Displays fine flexibility and the ability to stay low, use leverage and strike and move an opponent off the line. Understands hand usage and capable of controlling an opponent when he uses sound inside placement. Very light on his feet and is able to adjust and redirect to finish. At the Senior Bowl, he performed very well including doing back flips a la JPP. Sure wrap up tackler and capable of exploding to the ball with the range to make plays outside the box. After extensive playing time and facing much double blocking, he has developed sound instincts and awareness for draws, misdirection and screens. Good sense of timing to peel off blockers to get to the ball. Relies on his initial quickness and natural leverage to defeat blocks. Works hard to rush the passer, but needs additional moves. Best suited to play nose tackle in the zero or one-technique role. As a senior, he started 11 games and had 72 tackles with 13 TFL, 1 FF, 1 FR, 5 QB hurries and 6.5 sacks. Earned 1st team FCS All-American honors. As a junior, he started 12 games and registered 57 tackles along with 12 TFL, 7.5 sacks, 3 FF and 1 FR, earning first team MVFC honors. Over his career, he totaled 204 tackles, 34.5 TFLs, 4 FF, 3 FR and 18 sacks. Rare production for a nose tackle. At the NFL Combine, he came in under 6’1”, 324 lbs. with 32 1/4” arms and 9 1/8” hands. He ran a 5.01 time and did 27 reps. Added a 30.5” VL, 8’5” BJ, 4.62 shuttle and 7.57 three cone. Similar to Brandon Mebane in size, AA and quickness to also play tackle in a 4-3 scheme. Contributes early in a line rotation and can a key factor as a situational tackle. Early rotational tackle presents a fine change of pace for starters. Good early 3rd day selection with upside to surprise and be a quality starter in time. Top 100 prospect here and may be drafted in the 3rd round. One of the emerging defenders in this entire draft with a huge ceiling to start and provide an athletic anchor in the middle.
Draft Projection: 3rd-4th Round
