Scouting Report: Rashan Gary, DT, Michigan

Plainfield, NJ | 6041 | 287 | 4.82E | 2020

This prospect could very well be the top player chosen in the 2019 NFL Draft. A rare athlete with tremendous physique who combines speed with power and runs faster than most running backs. Has been timed at 4.57 in the forty-yard dash by the Michigan coaches, with a 31” vertical, 9-6 broad jump and 6.70 three-cone. Has been praised for his leadership and has assumed a mentorship role to the incoming freshman, as a sophomore. Needed some time to learn the playbook during his first season and could be one of college football’s biggest bust out stars in 2017. Has been refining his technique after being able to get by on pure talent for so long. Can stand to be more active with his hands, plenty of room to improve in that area. One of the most hyped players ever to come out of high school, his recruitment was highly publicized throughout the process and he is treated like a celebrity when he returns home to New Jersey—it wouldn’t be surprising to see him have some sort of reality show or own shoe line when he departs Ann Arbor, especially with the growing amount of ‘mentors’ who claim to be advising him.
