Scouting Report on Ray Drew

by Barry Every - 06/03/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Drew's frame will easily hold another 30 pounds. He is built a bit like North Carolina defensive end Donte Moss.
Needs Improvement: Drew needs to add more size and muscle mass to combat rushing plays run straight at him. Drew also needs to be more consistent with pad level at the point of attack.
Most Impressive: He may be one of the strongest players, pound-for-pound, in the country. He is athletic enough to cover kickoffs. Drew could also play outside linebacker in the 3-4, or grow into a perfect WDE/SDE combo in the 4-3 defense. Drew is a high-effort kid who is only going to get better.
Conclusion: The sky is the limit for this south Georgia phenomenon. He will most likely see playing time early because of his speed and overall athleticism. He is definitely one of the top players - if not the No. 1 prospect - in Georgia.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
