2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Aaron Donald, DL , Pittsburgh
As mentioned, possesses elite speed and very active hands. Excellent ability to keep blockers at bay and explode along the edge. Pass rush regularly pushes quarterback forward into the pocket. Shoots the gap regularly.
Light weight makes him a bit of a liability against bigger blockers. Will get engulfed and completely taken out at times. Makes the most of his lower center of gravity and will drive into blockers. If an offensive lineman plays too high, he will have serious problems with Donald. Uses hands well to establish position and get first contact. Good closing speed in backside pursuit. Quicker than he is fast. Average straight line speed. Could be a career pass-rush specialist that is featured heavily on 2nd/3rd and long.
Donald projects as an early first round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.
