Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines the differences between leverage and power with excerpts of 2020 NFL Draft prospect Bryan Edwards’ tape versus Georgia.
Bryan Edwards is a 6’3″, 220-pound wide receiver prospect with excellent speed. He’s an explosive player and with explosion often comes power. It’s obvious that a 6’3″, 220-pound receiver will display moments of power on the field.
What about smaller players? How do we determine the strength of a ballcarrier at the wide receiver position in a scouting report? Are their behaviors that translate across the position regardless of the size of the receiver? What about behaviors that translate across positions?
This RSP Boiler Room provides answers to these questions by differentiating leverage from power in the tape of Edwards in this game against Georgia.
