7th Round (3)
DE Ethan Westbrooks
West Texas A&M
Westbrooks is a bit of a gamble with epic potential. What do you expect in the 7th round? He is well built and extremely versatile. Many scouts feel he could be developed into either pass-rushing DE or a 3-technique tackle. His quickness stands out on film and should translate to the NFL. He needs major development as playing at West Texas A&M didn’t groom him to the level you’d like.
Questions about his character and judgment exist but most is based on his questionable appearance. In the limited film available, it was clear he is a pure pass-rusher with untapped potential. I mean he absolutely DOMINATED at the lower level.
He could easily add more weight without impacting his speed and quickness. A year in the weight room and some heavy grooming by Rod Marinelli could do this kid wonders.
