Corey Liuget scouting report

Corey Liuget DT Illinois

Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 300

Decent size and strength. Holds his ground against the run; doesn’t get knocked backwards. Shows the ability to keep his eyes in the backfield and react to the play. Above average sideline-to-sideline mobility for an interior lineman; makes some plays in pursuit. At his best when rushing the passer.
Struggles to shed blocks against the run; you can run right at him and he won’t do much to get in your way. Not very explosive, may not be as effective at getting into the backfield at the next level.
Liuget flashes the ability to be a dominant interior pass rusher, but he isn’t a complete player yet. He struggles against the run, especially when its coming right at him. However, he does have a very strong lower body and he rarely gets knocked around. He shows enough raw talent that with some quality NFL coaching he could improve in this area. In terms of overall skill set, he’s a poor man’s Ndamukong Suh, but has a long way to go before he’s at that level. He could potentially play defensive end in a 3-4 scheme, but I think he’ll be at his best when lined up at tackle in a 4-3 defense.
