POSITIVES

A three-year starter at TCU, Josh Carraway posted 22.5 TFLs and 17 sacks in the last two seasons. He has ideal length and is a great athlete on film. He shows natural bend and can turn the corner with tight hips. Carraway counters well off the edge and has an inside move with a shoulder dip that looks pro-level. Carraway uses his length well to lock out blockers and can long-arm with his inside shoulder. There are tools here to develop if an NFL team is willing to be patient and put Carraway in a strength program. He projects well as a 3-4 outside linebacker. 

NEGATIVES

Carraway’s workout times did not match what shows on film. He needs to develop much better lower-body strength. Carraway’s inability to stop the run or set the edge makes him a likely situational pass-rusher at least early in his career. His toughness on film leaves a lot to be desired. Despite great length, Carraway has small hands. A lack of football IQ and instincts are consistently seen on the tape.
 

PRO COMPARISON: Dadi Nicolas, Kansas City Chiefs 

FINAL GRADE: 5.30/9.00 (Backup Caliber—Round 6)
