Draft Rewind 2014: Stephon Tuitt, Pittsburgh Steelers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about STEPHON TUITT: Notre Dame, 6054 304 4.95. Junior entry. Two-year starter. His value has gone up in this draft despite injury because he is a rare commodity. A country strong versatile 4-3 or 3-4 tackle or end. Sets the edge with technique and guile. Can press the pocket as a pass rusher then make the quarterback throw out of the well by getting his long arms up. Hustles and takes good downfield angles in pursuit. Can stack the line of scrimmage and force the ball to bounce. Not fooled by play action passes or counters, always contain-conscious. Good instincts to feel screen passes. Stacks and sheds when double teamed. Can bend and play with leverage for a big man. He can run down the off tackle and inside running lanes with strength and power. A versatile big athlete who can play both the run and the pass. Not a quick twitch guy. His game is power and speed. Can improve his pass rush repertoire. 2013 stats: 49 T, 9 TFL, 7.5 sacks, 1 FF, 13 QBH. Medical exclusion at Combine, left foot. First/second round. (A-34 3/4, H-10, BP-31, 10-DNP).
