2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Kendall Langford, DE, Hampton

Langford, a great athlete, lettered in tack and field, football and basketball in high school. He played in all of the team's 12 games, starting three, as a true freshman in 2004 where he recorded 44 tackles (11.5 for loss), with six sacks. Starting all 12 games in 2005, Langford made 65 tackles, with 15.5 for loss and four and a half sacks. He was voted to the All Mid Eastern American Conference first team. In 2006, he repeated the feat. Again, he started all 12 games making 55 tackles, 15.5 for loss and a personal high, eight sacks. He was named team captain prior to the 2007 season and played in 11 games, while recording 72 tackles (13.5 of them for loss) and recorded six sacks. He have a real size and bulk combination and was a man against child while playing at Hampton. Langford is an experienced three years starter who is an excellent athlete with long arms. Versatile, Langford could play defensive end in a 3-4 alignment or any position along the line on a 4-3 system, because he is very strong at the point and will hold his own at the outside. He is an instinctive player, moving very well through traffic for a man of his size. He is also a very disciplined player who will play hurt, but he needs to learn to bend his knees better. Langford also lack bursts (5.09-40) and struggles sometimes shedding blockers, so his level of competition is a concern here. Langford is the kind of prospect that could move up quickly on draft boards. He is a hard working player who is well built and posses the necessary attributes to excel at the next level. But, he needs more coaching and his technique leaves a lot to be desire;but overall, he is an exceptional talent. If he had played in a BCS conference, he would probably be considered a first or second round player. He could start in the NFL within two years, that's how talented he is.
