Bralen Trice 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- No. 8 recruit in Arizona for his class
- Opted for Washington over offers from Alabama, Notre Dame, and mostly every Pac-12 school
- Scheme tendencies: Odd front
- 2022 projected role: Starting EDGE
Pros: Bralen Trice is a relentless pass rusher with outstanding functional strength. It’s easy to love just how urgent Trice is off the ball and how he battles to clear blocks and relentlessly pursue the quarterback. He features terrific contact balance that allows him to remain sturdy throughout his rush, establish a half-man relationship, and power through the edges of blocks. Trice is effective at converting speed to power and compromising the width of the pocket while showing good counters and combinations to get off the block. Trice plays with outstanding leverage against the run, showcasing good power at the point of attack and the ability to squeeze gaps.
Cons: Bralen Trice is a late bloomer that was very quiet to start his college career. He didn’t play at all until 2021 when he played less than 200 snaps. The switch has clearly flipped and he’s making a significant impact in 2022. I want to see Trice play with a bit more control as he’s missed some tackles in the backfield, so finding balance once clearing blocks will allow him to make even more splash plays. Trice is a good athlete but won’t be confused as a top-tier guy in terms of twitch and explosiveness. He’s also not the most dynamic in terms of bend and reducing his upper half.
