2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Carl Bradford, DE , Arizona State

Bradford does many things well, including explosion off the line and burst at the point of attack. Will likely transition to 3-4 OLB as he is a bit undersized to play as a 4-3 DE.

Good pursuit lines. Explosive in his lower half and uses hands well to disrupt a blocker's attack. Short arms and average hands. Tackles well and looks to lay into the ball-carrier. Decent instincts, rarely a step ahead of the play. Stays after the play when on the backside. High energy player. Must add more strength in order to hold his own against bigger blockers who may easily engulf him.

Durable throughout his career with no off-field concerns. Could afford to work on his bend when pass-rushing the edge. Poor speed to power transition. Good enough awareness to drop into short zones or flats. Leaves his feet when tackling. Quick in tight quarters.

Bradford projects as a third or fourth rounder in the 2014 NFL Draft.
