    This Alex Highsmith?

    Why Charlotte DE Alex Highsmith Will Be Highest-Drafted 2020 Shrine Alumni

    And as a player in Conference USA, Highsmith successfully checks boxes from a productivity standpoint as well — considering you'll want smaller school players to dominate the competition. But where do players need to pass with flying colors the most?

    The tape. Always check the tape.

    In the case of Highsmith, the tape tells the story of an explosive athlete who doesn't just run around people with bursts but actually shows next level skills with his hands. Highsmith offers good quickness in short spaces and illustrates the necessary bend and tilt to corner and attack quarterbacks with effectiveness. His explosion may get all the press, but one of his best qualities is his hands.

    Yessir!

    Unfortunate he was on a 49ers team but think we can show him the light...

    Highest single-game pass-rush grade; draft-eligible EDGE

    1. Chase Young (Wk 5) - 96.8
    2. Chase Young (Wk 4) - 96.2
    3. Alex Highsmith (Wk 1) - 94.7

  • Yes that one.

    Been eyeing him since before the Shrine game. Was the player that I had in mind during the 'how to project mid round pass rushers' discussions were underway.

    Not as high on him as I was on Javon Hargrave coming out or Terron Armstead, but pretty close. If Seattle can pick up an extra third round pick and take him there, I'd consider that a win on draft day. Feel about the same on him as I did on Justin Simmons and would feel equally filthy if we ended up Odhiambo'ing that selection.
