  • Bradlee Anae, Utah

    6’3, 257 | 41 total tackles, 14.0 TFL, 13.0 sacks, 1 FF

    TDN Prospect Rank: 81 (3rd Round)

    If the Falcons wait to add an EDGE until later on Day 2, or want to double-dip on the position to build depth, Utah’s Bradlee Anae could be a possible target in the third round. At 6’3, 257, Anae has plenty of bulk to play on all three downs but is a bit lacking in his length. He put out strong production while at Utah, with 14.0 TFL and 13.0 sacks in the 2019 season. His burst off the ball is impressive and I love his ability to convert speed-to-power with his pass rushes.

    Anae is a hard worker with a motor that consistently runs hot. He’s physical as a run defender and is excellent at using his hands to deconstruct blocks. As a pass rusher, Anae wins with a variety of pass rushing moves, quick burst off the snap, and—most of all—terrific effort on every play. His lack of ideal length and high-end athleticism likely cap his ceiling as a complementary/rotational EDGE player, but Anae can be very productive in the NFL if utilized properly. At the end of Day 2, that would be a pretty good value for a Falcons team that is in desperate need of quality depth.

    Julian Okwara, Notre Dame

    6’4, 248 | 19 total tackles, 7.0 TFL, 5.0 sacks, 2 FF

    TDN Prospect Rank: 42 (2nd Round)

    Another of the second-tier pass rushers who could potentially be had in the second round, Notre Dame’s Julian Okwara is a speed rushing specialist with dynamic athletic traits and fairly advanced pass rushing technique. He’s got nasty burst off the line of scrimmage and is capable of blowing past slower OTs with his raw speed. Okwara pairs speed with exceptional bend and quick hands to get underneath blocks and reliably establish a half-man relationship with his opponent.

    I like Okwara’s flexibility and change-of-direction skills—he’s a fluid mover who can run sideline-to-sideline and close quickly on opposing ball carriers. However, I have significant concerns about Okwara’s play strength and ability to stop the run. He’s a liability as a base end and will get blown off the ball by power. He can tackle well and his range and natural feel for dropping into short-area zone coverage may set him up for a role as a SAM on base downs, but he’ll struggle mightily in a more traditional role.

  • He is a stud. Im not sure where he goes but I like him better than Baun and others mentioned in that range. If he played somewhere besides Utah he'd be mentioned higher.

  • Anae was being touted as 2-3rd round pick dropped to the 5th round.

  • Bummed we didn't get this guy. I think he's going to be way better than where he was drafted. IMHO, late 2nd, early 3rd should have been where he went. He just has he knack to get through that trash.
