Scouting Report on Joseph Barksdale

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Barksdale has very good size and a quickness that is rare in a huge defensive tackle. He shows good balance and is able to keep his feet about him even on cut block attempts. Barksdale uses his hands well and works his way down the line well on run plays with good awareness and vision. His size and strength allows him to handle double teams without giving up much ground and his burst off the ball and power make him a dangerous pass rusher up the middle. Barksdale has the agility and footwork to play guard on the offensive side of the ball as well.
