Nic Scourton’s Strengths

Powerful upper and lower body with muscular and imposing length and the mass to rush inside or outside. Very good athletic ability due to contact balance, acceleration, foot speed, foot quickness, upfield burst, lateral agility, and change of direction. Good explosion off the line of scrimmage with the ability to pursue backside versus the run with a very good sideline-to-sideline motor. Repertoire of pass rush moves: Spin – Speed to Power & Bull to win 1v1 vs Vertical, 45 and Jump pass sets. Good use of hands to extend and lift the offensive lineman, allowing him to read and shed the block, making a play in the backfield or line of scrimmage. Violent hands, good hand placement, timing, and bend around the edge to ward off blockers effectively versus the run and pass.


Nic Scourton’s Weaknesses

Adequate pad level, likely as a result of playing in a two-point stance and lacking experience in the three-point or four-point stances. There is an over-reliance on spin moves during pass rushes and, occasionally, a deficiency in hand strength when attempting to defeat anchor blocks. Lacks a variety of counter moves.



With his transfer to Texas A&M, discussions suggest Scourton may transition his stance with his hand in the ground more frequently (three-point or four-point stance) than he did at Purdue. Given this, his athleticism, combined with his lower and upper body strength, as well as his reach and explosiveness, render him a versatile defensive line prospect, capable of playing across the 3-7 technique positions. Scourton has the potential to broaden his repertoire of counter moves and could benefit from greater consistency in vertical play and pocket pressure. Overall, Scourton possesses a unique blend of size, athleticism, and strength for an edge rusher, putting him into a rare category.
