Pass Rush: Devon Still was a much more impressive pass rusher in 2011 than in years past. He has a solid get off and burst for his size. He fires off the ball low considering his 6’5 frame. He flashes violent hands and can be overwhelming with the bull rush. He showcases good lateral agility a very nice swim move. The biggest problem with Still has been/is his inconsistent motor. He appears to quit once he’s initially stopped. He’s a more limited athlete than other first round DT’s which will probably limit his pass rushing abilities in the NFL.
Run Defense: Still is a more than capable run defender. He anchors well and if his pads are low, he wins. He is excellent at stacking and shedding blockers. He has good ball awareness and can get off the snap quickly and into run lanes. He has the athleticism and lateral agility to play down the line but his motor is questionable. I would like to see more effort on plays going away. Because of his height he is susceptible to allowing blockers under his pads but when he wants he stays low. For Still he could be a dominate run defender if he develops the motivation play in and play out. Read the rest of this entry » «Devon Still Scouting Report»
