Real Football Scouting Report: Defensive Tackles

The following is an article written by Real Football Services. They are a frequent contributor on newyorkjets.com.

Dewayne Robertson's greatest strength is his rare combination of size and athletic ability. He has outstanding quickness and explosiveness to consistently get penetration, and rarely loses with his first step. He has very good awareness and has the strength and skill to beat double-teams. He has very good change of direction skills and works best on the move. Robertson explodes into his tackles, will chase down plays from behind and closes quickly.

Sione Pouha is a perfect fit for the 3-4 defense. He has excellent size and bulk to hold the POA versus the double team and can occupy two gaps. Has excellent upper and lower body strength and can push the pocket as a bull rusher. Pouha should get plenty of opportunities to play in the preseason which could lead to a larger role for him in the regular defense.

Matt McChesney has good quickness off the ball. He makes up for his lack of size and bulk with a good first step and his ability to slide past blockers and penetrate at the line of scrimmage. McChesney is a solid tackler who will improve with more experience and added bulk.
