2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jack Crawford, DE, Penn State
Crawford has a long body type but needs to continue to add more strength in his lower half. Due to a lack of power, he generates very little push even against average college competition. Crawford is able to knock down passes and often plays with a high pad level since he will sometimes abandon a pass rush in order to go up for the swat. He has solid lateral movement and possesses average athleticism.
He is a developmental prospect with limited experience. He has only played football for five years, including his career at Penn State. Crawford will not be able to play in his first year and for now, only projects as a left defensive end. He has very little experience dropping back into coverage.
If a team adds him, they will have to guide him through the basics of reading offenses and fortify his knowledge and understanding of the game. Crawford could end up part of a rotation, but may not have the potential to ever start in the NFL.
