      Late 3 > Rd 4 prospect. So that would mean 3rd round pick for us.

      I’m looking at this player and I’m wondering if this is a Bowles/Arians type hybrid player. I’m wondering if I’m seeing a Deone Bucannon with a much higher Pass Rush ceiling? Anyone have a lot of experience watching him play? I’ve only briefly studied his tape so my opinion is very preliminary.

      * Looks like a sub-package Overhang/On-ball Edge hybrid defender that will primarily be an attack player or Man TEs + simple Flat coverage.

      * Omnidirectional movement skills in space and explosive downhill (but clear processing issues so keep him out of process-intensive roles).

      * Physical tools and frame to be a project Edge player and rush the passer. He wins 1v1s in Pass Rush against OTs. I see what looks to be a lot of length, solid snap anticipation, burst, and shoulder dip to decrease his profile and corner the C arc on Speed Rush. He’s extremely violent and aggressive. With a year of tutelage on rush suite and defeating OT strikes to keep his pads free, this could be someone that is an absolute asset.

      * Should be a very good Teams player.

      A couple of the sites I’ve looked up on him have him as a 4-3 Will/Mike or a 3-4 ILB, but can line up on the edge to rush. Sounds like a backup ILB and can be used like Devin White in blitzing situations. Eventually, could become a starter.

      I think that is probably because the sites you’re viewing are just looking at his build and his generic off-ball role at Ohio State. But when he was deployed as a B <> B gap run fit player box LB last year he struggled significantly. Again, I don’t see a player that possesses the processing chops for that and I think you’d be wasting what OSU may have uncovered this last year (when he was taken out of that role); an Overhang player who can provide the Blitz and Edge Rush. I think that latter role might be where he finds his most use in the NFL.

      Did you catch many OSU games? Did he pop off the broadcast view?

      Didn’t catch any games, but I think they’re trying to sell him off like a potential, every down off the ball LB. Although, they scouts all have denote his blitzing.

      This type of player kinda reminds of Kendall Beckwith from scouting reports. Beckwith just a run stopper, but no coverage skills at all. Although, he did do well rushing the passer, but we were in a 4-3 and he was far undersized in that role.

      No thanks. Ive watched every Ohio St game forever now and he never jumped out. In fact I dont like any of our LBers coming out this year.

      Browning looked really good all week at practice and made some plays in the senior bowl game. The draft sites say that he is a great athlete but the knock on him may be his instincts. His 2019 Highlights were really good as an off ball inside LB. To me he looks a lot better then Tuf Borland who played inside LB for Ohio State. For some reason Browning couldn’t beat out lesser LBs on Ohio state but he is a better pro prospect then they are…

      We don’t really use LBs the same way the Patriots do but he seems like a Kyle Van-Noy type Hybrid front player who can play inside LB and also on the Edge. He is extremely fast and strong with stopping power as a tackler and can blow up blockers.

      He seems like he would be a really good fit with the Bucs in my opinion and I’ve been picking him a lot on mock draft machine sites for the last several weeks. I hope we take him in the 3rd or 4th round. He would be an upgrade over Minter and injury insurance for White / David.

      @nobody what are your thoughts on Joe Tryon in rd3 he is a very toolsy Edge defender that looks the part but didn’t have great production. Could be good with a little polish.

      I realize you didn’t ask me, but I don’t think he’ll be available to Tampa in R3. Maybe not even available in R2. He’s already climbing draft boards.

        I’d love to see the Bucs draft him at the end of round 1. Or maybe even trade back into early round 2, pick up a lower pick and get him.

      I’ll take a look at his tape in the coming days and let you know what I think.

        Daniel Jeremiah had Tryon mocked to the Bucs in round 1 of his recent mock draft for whatever that is worth.

        Looks like he is probably a top 50 pick at least.

      @Colin in Canada, what province are you in? I live in Ontario. Rare to find Bucs fans up here.
      I would not mind seeing the bucs double dip at Edge. I love Ossai from Texas and Philips from Miami also seems real nice. I know we need IDL but no one really blows me away. I like the Nixon kid from Iowa just gotta see how the board falls.

      @gareth , not going to do a board this year so just wanted to let you know I won’t be getting to this Tryon review and breakdown. Not much time and going to devote that energy elsewhere.
