Scouting Report: Jachai Polite
School: Florida Position: Defensive End / Outside Linebacker Class: Junior Height: 6-2 Weight: 260 Projected Draft Round: 4-6
Explosive first step off the edge, and able to quickly get outside leverage on tackles that aren’t proficient in containing elite edge pressure. Doesn’t appear to play with consistent effort, teams will need to determine if that is concentration or energy. Not a power rusher at this point, but has shown the ability to fool opponents into getting off balance and able to gain an advantage with the tackle out of position. Not as long as many teams would like for their every down edge rusher, but could find a place as a positional pass rusher coming off the edge as a DE or OLB.
