Lazarius Levingston scouting report

Lazarius Levingston DE LSU
Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 292

Strengths:
Elite size and strength. Experience at both end and tackle; prototypical skill set for a 3-4 end. Shows decent athleticism for someone nearing 300 pounds. Strong lower body makes him an asset against the run; holds his ground against bigger offensive linemen.
Weaknesses:
Not a threat to generate much of a pass rush. Slightly undersized for an interior linemen. Missed time with a knee injury in 2010. Part of a rotation for much of his career.
Comments:
Levingston doesn’t have a ton of upside, unless you’re a team specifically looking to add depth at 3-4 defensive end in the late rounds of the draft. Despite limited production in college he’ll get drafted somewhere because there simply aren’t many players that fit into the 3-4 scheme. There’s not a lot to be excited about, but he benefits from the simply laws of supply and demand.
