Zach Hodges

School: Harvard
Position: OLB
Bio: Three-year starter twice named as an All-American. Posted a career-best 8.5 sacks last season.
Positive: Outstanding small-school college defensive end with natural pass-rushing skill. Plays with good pad level, displays a burst both up the field as well as laterally and plays with balance as well as body control. Easily redirects off the initial block, quickly alters his angle of attack and shows the ability to pursue with speed from the back side. Can bend off the edge, keeps his feet moving on contact and is rarely knocked off his feet. Slices between double-team blocks to make plays behind the line of scrimmage.
Negative: Struggles getting off blocks and easily contained at the point of attack. Primarily comes out of a three-point stance and used up the field in college. Struggled during linebacker drills at the Senior Bowl. Streaky defender who disappears for stretches.
Analysis: Hodges is an explosive and athletic pass rusher who shows the ability to force the action when on his game. He has size limitations and has not shown the ability to play in space during the run-up to the draft. Likely a candidate as a one-gap defensive end, Hodges must be more consistent with his play in production on the field.
