Scouting Report: Justin Tuck

Scouting Report: Justin Tuck  School:  Notre Dame

Ht:  6-4  Wt:  260  40:  4.61

The Good: Explosive pass rusher that also displays the ability to defend the run.  Fast off the edge, plays low with leverage and hard to control.  Has excellent balance, tough to knock off his feet and beats blocks on his way to the quarterback.  Gets a lot of momentum going up the field but also displays the ability to change direction and pursue from the backside. 

The Bad: Stiff and has difficulty redirecting to the action.  Not a lineman that immediately alters his angle of attack or displays skill in space.  

The Skinny: A top-flight prospect with a great upside for the next level, Tuck is a pass rushing force developing into an impact lineman.  Will get better in time as he physically matures, completes his game and a very high pick in the future.
