Chris Canty School: Virginia
Ht: 6-7.5 Wt: 279 40: 4.94 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Played in five games as a senior after dislocating
his left knee in September and posted
30/7/1. All-Conference selection as a junior after
totaling 104/12/4. Sophomore totals include 86/
4/2. Involved in a bar room incident last February
and was hit in the left eye with an unknown
object. As a result, fifty stitches were required to
close the wound.
Positives: Well-sized defensive end
best suited as a two gap lineman. Heady defender
who reads the action and quickly locates the
ball. Moves well laterally, plays low with leverage
and immediately redirects to the ball handler.
Holds his ground against blocks and stays on
his feet. Consistently focused on by opponents.
Negatives: Lacks a quick first step off the snap, has
more built-up speed than a sudden burst, and
does not flash on the scene. Gets wired in
blocks and slow coming free. Must improve his
hand technique and develop moves. Had durability
issues throughout college.
Analysis: A big
defensive end who can occupy several blockers
at a time, Canty is perfectly suited to play on the
left side in a 34 defense. Offers good upside for
the next level, yet durability concerns will knock
him into the draft's second day.
