Summer Scouting Notes: EDGE Ali Gaye, LSU

Doesn’t possess elite end speed. Appears average in that regard. Doesn’t run as well as you’d expect… Excellent body control. Keeps his balance and feet very well while attacking the blocker… Very quick first step. Terrifying… Shows some real explosion from the snap. Want to see it more consistently all the way through the rep… Powerful upper body makes him difficult to contain 1v1, especially in a hand fight… Lacks in his upper body strength. He’s built but doesn’t control it well… Shows good balance when going into his bend on a speed rush… Very impressive bend. Get’s very low and attacks… Shows good hand usage from time to time. Gets his arms up quickly to disrupt passing lanes… Decent tackler when he can get hands-on with the player. Isn’t often in a position to make a play. Almost strictly a pass rusher… Doesn’t always take great pursuit angles. Will get caught up trying to account for them by being overaggressive… Got to love Gaye’s motor. Stays aware of the play around him.
