Durell Nchami 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- Three sacks in 2021 before a season-ending injury in Week 6
- Scheme tendencies: Can play both 4-3 DE and 3-4 OLB
- 2022 projected role: Starting DE
Pros: Durell Nchami is an edge rusher that has a ceiling due to his fluid movements. Nchami showed to have good flexibility that allows him to attack the edges of offensive linemen. Nchami has the ability to bend around the edge to get the corner of offensive linemen. Nchami also shows to have a good motor. When he is on the backside of run plays, he can chase down ball carriers. He also is willing to chase ball carriers down the field to make the tackle. In limited time, Nchami shows to have a high ceiling as an edge rusher and if he can stay healthy, he can become one of the better defensive ends in the Big Ten.
Cons: Durell Nchami’s biggest issues thus far come from injuries. Nchami missed the back half of the 2021 season due to injuries and he also missed the entire 2019 season. It is important for Nchami to put together an entire season and prove that he can stay healthy. Nchami is an intriguing player that shows to have great upside but his evaluation is incomplete as a player because of the injuries. I am personally looking forward to watching Nchami this year because he can potentially turn into one of the better defensive ends in this draft class.
