2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Carlos Dunlap



Strengths:
  • Very big frame and nice bulk
  • Very good strength
  • Long arms
  • Good agility
  • Solid closing speed
  • Takes good angles to the ball
  • Plays with great pad level
  • Instinctive - good block recognition
  • Knack for batting down passes
  • Flashes great disengagement to make tackles
  • Versatile - lines up DT and DE on both sides of ball





    Weaknesses:
  • Lacks a first step; doesn't fire out of stance
  • Not the elite athlete he is hyped up as
  • Extremely inconsistent
  • Lacks serious power at point of attack
  • Very soft and not physical
  • Dominated by inferior talent
  • Not mentally tough
  • Not as productive as stats would lead you to believe
  • No pass-rush move outside of spin
  • Lacks counter moves
  • Doesn't seem to love the game
  • Poor intangibles
  • Lethargic body language on the field

    Summary: At times I will see Dunlap make a nice hustle play, but these moments are few and far between. He'll make a tackle for a loss when he wasn't even blocked, but this doesn't show up statistically. Dunlap is an extremely overrated prospect with very poor intangibles. He could get drafted anywhere from the top 10 (Jamaal Anderson/Derrick Harvey) to the second round (Calais Campbell).

    Player Comparison: Jamaal Anderson. Anderson has had a mediocre work ethic and played very sloppy, lazy football for Atlanta. I anticipate the same for Dunlap in the NFL.
