Evaluation

Fitzgerald is a strong and powerful defensive end prospect, who plays with a blue-collar type of style. A good combo of skills he is perfectly suited to play strongside defensive end. With a big frame he is able to be physical at the point of attack, holding his ground allowing him to track ball carriers and make tackles. He also has a very quick get off for a prospect with his size, collapsing the pocket and putting pressure on quarterbacks. - Greg Powers
