2015 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska

The Arizona Western transfer posted 82 tackles with nine sacks at that school during his freshman year, but a broken leg sidelined him for the 2012 campaign. He moved on to Nebraska in 2013, adding 9.5 sacks and 16 tackles for losses among his 65 stops for the Huskers. Some scouts are viewing Gregory as a potential 3-4 linebacker, but I see him more as a rush end-type in that alignment, as he has a good understanding for leverage and is powerful at the point of attack. He has strong and active hands and demonstrates outstanding strength that makes it hard for bigger blockers to knock him back off the ball. He can get across face quickly and has the lower-body strength and flexibility to sink his hips, drop his weight and gain leverage. He has the arm power and body control to split double teams, but it is also because of his quickness that he can beat most blocks. Even when he is not quick to shed, he can cross face fast. As a pass rusher, he can beat you with either his speed or power, possessing good body control and excellent hip snap. The thing I like is the way he can squeeze through the tiniest of creases to get into the backfield. He plays with tough aggression and is a disruptive force that needs to be accounted for on every play. He displays excellent knee bend, hip flip and balance to stay up on his feet. He can adjust on the run and is best when he plays a variety of positions (stunts) off the edge.
