Ryan Russell

School: Purdue
Position: DE
Bio: Four-year starter who posted a career-best 44 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and 3 sacks as a senior.
Positive: Long, athletic college defensive end with growth potential. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level and rarely knocked off his feet. Easily changes direction, shows the ability to get outside the box in backside pursuit and runs ball carriers down from behind. Uses his hands to protect himself, can bend off the edge and fluid moving to any area of the field. Works hard and gets a lot of force going up the field.
Negative: Lacks bulk and engulfed at the point by a single opponent. Struggles getting off blocks once engaged. Possesses good but not great pursuit speed.
Analysis: Russell has been a steady contributor on the Purdue defense since his freshman season and has shown a lot of natural pass rushing skill. He offers upside but must improve his playing strength while keeping his flexibility and smooth movement skills.
