Utah redshirt senior edge rusher Nate Orchard "could be a dynamic pass rusher as a pro," said an NFC scout.
The scout prefaced that quote by labeling Orchard as "one of the most frustrating prospects to watch on tape." For an explanation on why that is, we kick it to the NFL.com draft team of Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks, Charles Davis and Lance Zierlein: "The evaluator's frustration stems from Orchard being misused during the early part of the season when the Utes attempted to move him around to take advantage of his skills as a playmaker. Although he has emerged as the top sack producer in college football, the 6-4, 255-pound senior is at his best when positioned in a 'wide-nine' alignment and allowed to chase the passer off the edge. Orchard's ability to turn speed into power is rare. The scout pegged him as a likely Day 2 prospect (Rounds 2-3) in the draft." Nov 26 - 9:10 PM
