2020 NFL Combine: Outside Linebacker Prospects, Invites, What To Watch For

By

4. Anfernee Jennings, Alabama 6-2, 252 (EDGE) (3)

Why He’s Here On The List: Underappreciated as a solid all-around producer in his final three seasons, he was steadier than it seemed as a reliable pass rusher who had to be accounted for whenever he was on the field. There’s no questioning his heart or his ability as simply a good football player, but he’s missing a few of the superstar tools to push in to the second round. However …

What The NFL Types Want To See: He has to workout like a top 50 pick. He might not be quite tall enough, and he might be a tweener, but he has to show off the quick-twitch abilities that showcase the necessary NFL tools. You don’t play for four years on the Alabama defense without having the stuff, but there has to be something freakish about his raw skills.

Bottom Line: More steady than sensational, it’s hard to get too fired up about a standup double of a pass rusher, but he’s the type of player every D needs – every defensive coordinator will make a case for him from the late second round until he’s gone. He’ll do a little of everything right, and he’ll be a steady starter who won’t make a whole lot of mistakes.
