Scouting Report on Neland Ball

by Mike Farrell - 07/17/2006
Has a tremendous frame for a defensive end but will need time to add weight. Is very good at using his hands to keep linemen from getting into him and he has good vision to read the play even while engaged. Has very long arms and good athletic ability which allows him to run down plays to the outside. Is more effective in space but stays square to the line and holds his own against the run. Quick off the snap and his ability to sense run or pass off his pre-snap read is good. He can sometimes over-commit to the inside or outside at times. When he does so, he hustles to overcome and his speed often allows him to get back in on the play. He does a good job of staying low despite his tall frame. His change of direction is good but can get better and he needs to do a better job of getting his hands up in the passing game.
