Jason’s 2015 Nate Orchard Scouting Report

Basics:

Name- Nate Orchard

College- Utah

Position- DE/OLB

Jersey Number- 8

Measureables:

Height- 6’4

Weight- 255 lbs

40 Time- 4.75

Positives:

A really good pass rusher

Good tackler

Good edge rusher

Negatives:

Undersized edge rusher, likely transitions to being a 3-4 OLB in the NFL

Doesn’t have the best edge rush speed

Overall:

Orchard is an interesting prospect, he is a really good pass rusher, a solid edge rusher, and a really good tackler. But he is undersized, likely transitions to being a 3-4 OLB in the NFL, and he doesn’t posses the best speed. But Orchard had a good Senior Bowl week in Mobile, so I expect his name to come off the board either in the late 1st-round, or early on day 2 of the draft.
