    Virginia EDGE Charles Snowden is impossible to miss when watching the Cavaliers’ defense over the last three seasons. Not only has he been a productive and versatile playmaker, but his tall, long, and gangly frame jumps off the screen. Snowden has rare length for the position and he moves well given how tall he is. His blend of mobility, length, and processing skills makes him a good zone coverage defender, effective pass rusher, and slippery gap-shooter. While there is technical work needed with his hand usage, his ability to keep separation from blockers, slip through gaps and use his length to impact throwing lanes in coverage makes him an appealing defender. Snowden won’t be a fit for every defense and those that incorporate hybrid fronts from a 3-4 base are the ones that should be interested in Snowden. There’s no question he needs to add bulk and functional strength, but his toolbox is quite full of traits that could make him an effective 3-4 outside linebacker at the next level. 

    Ideal RoleDevelopmental outside linebacker that is used in shallow coverage drops and to slash gaps.

    Scheme Fit3-4.
