Ledyard | Pass rushers underwhelming between BC and Wake

Boston College Eagles v Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Saturday, September 9, 2017, 1:00 p.m. ET

Chestnut Hill, MA

Wake Forest (34), Boston College (10)

Notable Prospects Entering the Contest

Wake Forest

Duke Ejiofor, EDGE, Wake Forest (RS Senior)

Analysis: Slow processor who seems to lack twitch and high end athleticism off the edge. Not a dynamic speed-rushing threat up the arc. Methodical in his movements, but will work his hands to earn slow-burn pressures. Got hung up on blocks too often and didn’t show the ability to be sudden or disruptive in his movements. Showed a nice swim move as an interior rusher, which could be his best role moving forward. Stock: Down

Cam Serigne, TE, Wake Forest (RS Senior)

Analysis: Did not catch a pass, nor was he targeted in the game. Serigne was adequate as a blocker, showing good tenacity to attempt to stay on defenders. He can overextended, but moves well in space.  Stock: Same

Boston College

Harold Landry. EDGE, Boston College (Senior)

Analysis: Pass rush variety still appears to be lacking significantly. Heavily-reliant upon outside speed/bend to get to the quarterback, and doesn’t quickly process when to access a counter move to avoid getting run up the arc. Lower half still lanky and may need to add bulk. Set a strong edge as a run defender and didn’t get widened easily out of his gap. Good discipline to stay at home on a third down draw, a read that may have come from film study. Tried to backdoor the puller on a QB counter play, should have stepped down and squeezed the gap. Made it too easy. Dipped under a tackle’s punch to get home for a sack. Easily his best trait. Does an excellent job of getting his hands up in passing lands. For a pure finesse pass rusher, Landry is a good athlete, but is he a great one? Stock: Same

Kamrin Moore, CB, Boston College (Senior)

Analysis: This was not a matchup to glean a whole lot about Moore, as he was rarely targeted, especially down the field. Showed good mirror-and-match ability in short-intermediate areas of the field, but wasn’t being tested by elite competition. Flashed willing run defense coming downhill. With matchups against Notre Dame and Clemson looming, we should learn a lot about Moore in the coming weeks. Stock: Same
