NEGATIVES

OVERALL

William Bradley-King is small for a power rusher but has years of production to back his style of play. He is similar to a Matt Judon-type of player who wins off of power as a 3-4 outside linebacker but is limited athletically. The level of violence he is able to play at could lead to him landing a starting job in the NFL down the line. Overall, he is fairly maxed out, but his floor is high enough for him to crack an edge rotation early in his career.

       

GRADE: 7.42/10 (Round 4)

OVERALL RANK: 101/300

POSITION RANK: EDGE14

PRO COMPARISON: Matt Judon
