Day Two Rusher: Part X. 

By TOM

He reminds me a little of Flowers, but Flowers was a better player at Arkansas. However, Wise looked like Flowers at the Shrine. He is more 5-tech than pure DE. He is not a speed rusher. Though he does have underrated athleticism for a guy his size. He dominated at the Shrine, and looked like Flowers this past season. He also has much longer arms than Flowers. He has elite 35 5/8" arms. 

Mostly the Shine guys go Day Three, but I thought he burst his way into Day Two with a great performance there. Like Flowers he seemed to show that he would improve after his college career was over. He was a beast on the edge. His 4.8-4.9 speed was not a good number for him. Teams will be looking at him more as a 5-Tech than a D-end with that speed.

He showed up at the Combine bigger than Flowers. He looked more like a 5-Tech at Combine. He looked like a 5-Tech in space drills. A little long legged in bag drill. A little high turning the corner. Nice quick reactions. Great character and leadership. He received awards for community service at Arkansas.

He struggle a little last season with trying to do too many off field activities. "I sat him down and just simply [said], 'hey, do you want to be just involved in a lot of different things or do you want to be great at a few things?'" Arkansas HC Bielema Said. "We talked about taking a few things off his plate. The result is he could probably be one of the most premier linemen." He is a very diverse guy with a lot of interests off the field, including community service.

He got injured during the season, which hurt his stats as well. "It was tough not playing well in some games, because there was a lot going into the season," Wise said. "A lot of expectations and I felt like, at times, I wasn’t meeting them. But I knew that I was injured and I knew that if I just keep on pressing, keep on working, that everything would start falling into place." So he is looking like the steal of the Draft to me.

Senior (2016): SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week (Sept. 6). East-West Shrine Game Invitation. NFL Scouting Combine Invitation. Served as a team captain … Played in 13 games with eight starts … Totaled 49 tackles … Ranked tied for third on the team with 5.5 tackles for loss and second with 3.5 sacks … Forced a fumble, led the team with seven quarterback hurries and broke up three passes … 49 tackles tied for third-most on the team and tied for most among defensive linemen … Started the first eight games … Posted at least one-half tackle for loss in each of the first five games and in seven contests overall … Recorded at least one-half sack in each of the first three contests and four games overall … Tied for the team lead in tackles in two games … vs. Louisiana Tech (Sept. 3): Named SEC Player of the Week after he filled the stat sheet with a team-high tying seven tackles, including one-half sack, a career-high three quarterback hurries and a batted down pass … Helped halt what would be Louisiana Tech’s final drive of the game during the fourth quarter as he combined for a 10-yard sack with fellow defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter to force a punt that allowed Arkansas to run out the clock for the win … at No. 15 TCU (Sept. 10): Dropped Horned Frogs quarterback Kenny Hill for a sack on the first drive of the third quarter and finished with four tackles … vs. Texas State (Sept. 17): Recorded one-half sack for a 9-yard loss to force a punt late in the first quarter … vs. No. 10 Texas A&M (Sept. 24): Finished second on the team with six stops, including 1.0 for loss … vs. Alcorn State (Oct. 1): Registered a sack for a 6-yard loss on third down to force a punt midway through the second quarter … vs. No. 12 Ole Miss (Oct. 15): Finished with four tackles, including 0.5 for loss, one quarterback hurry and two pass breakups … Broke up his first pass of the game on the Rebels’ first drive of the game that resulted in a three-and-out … Hurried Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly to forced an incomplete pass on third down in the second quarter … at No. 21 Auburn (Oct. 22): Tied for the team lead with eight tackles (6 solo) … vs. No. 11 Florida (Nov. 5): Logged one-half sack in the fourth quarter to claim sole possession of 10th place all-time in school history with 16.5 career sacks … vs. No. 22 Virginia Tech (Dec. 29): Collected four tackles, including 0.5 for loss.

He will struggle with the option sometimes. He plays with his hands and eyes so well. He should translate well to the NFL. Because he is so good at getting his hands up, reading with his eyes, and then shedding and attacking. Great hands to stack and shed. Plays a little high sometimes.

I thought he was the best player at the East-West Shrine game. "Deatrich Wise Jr. was a man amongst boys at the Shrine Game," Justis Mosqueda said. "Wise may not be extremely well known, but to anyone paying attention, he was able to impress scouts and spectators as he had a fantastic showing at the Shrine Game." He showed everything I wanted to see at the Shrine.

He is an all out all the time guy on the field. "I just wanted to play," Wise said. "I didn’t want to be the type of person who would sit out, you know? A lot of people were telling me to sit out but I just ignored them and just kept trying to fight through it." The more I watch him the more I like him. 

He is a DE/5-T tweener who should be an interesting inside rusher in the NFL. He is not going to get to the QB with pure speed. He is a nice blend of power, hands, and agility in the rush. When he uses his hand violently he can shed the OLT quickly. 

He can get the outside shoulder of the ORT, and power into the QB without shedding him because of his size and strength. He can get knocked back as he tries to slide inside on the Dive, and then shed and get in on the tackle. Nice agility to move around while he is being blocked by an OL. 
Great job using his strong legs and long arms to power the OLT back and stop the RB on the edge. He comes off the snap a little slow sometimes. Great push-pull to pull himself inside when they ran away from him. Good blast off up field on 3rd and long.

He has great lower body strength that he uses for burst to power and shoves the OLT off him. He has some nice agility stopping and starting in space when the offense gets tricky. He played better at the Shrine game than he did all last season. Teams know that the Arkansas system hurts edge guys. They are expected to stop the run first and foremost, like Flowers a couple of years ago. He is a better player than he showed last season at Arkansas, but he probably is not as good a player as he showed at the Shrine. His 4.9 speed at the Combine hurt him a little, but his all out all the time elite effort at the Shrine could have hustled him into the bottom of the 3rd.

Shrine game: He was the defensive player of the week at the Shrine. He garnered 1.5 sack on a Shrine game leading 8 tackles, and had 4 pressures. He played in an odd front at Arkansas, and like all 5-Techs his stats suffered as a result. His first job was to take on blockers, and stack and shed. He was highest energy player at the Shrine. He showed he was a better athlete than expected. He got his hands up quick, and had excellent hand placement. He is high hipped, and played too high as a result. He has to stay and play low. 

He was he best DL against the run, and in the rush. He kept getting to the QB at the Shrine like he was Flowers. The two really are very similar player, but Flowers showed a little more of a knack for getting to the quarterback. He had a great Sack in the final drive of the Shrine. He had another big hit on the QB, on the final drive as the clock was ticking. 

Auburn- He has very long legs, which is not really what you want at DE. He has to get those hips low and mean. When he plays and stays low he looks like an NFL DE. He is a big agile 5-Tech. He knows how to use his hands. He is excellent against the run. He can be a bull in a china shop. He is terrific at bulling the OLT back into the QB and shedding. He can break inside to sack the QB.

Career (2012-16): A skilled pass-rusher with great size and burst off the line of scrimmage … Played in 50 games with 10 starts … Tallied 112 tackles, including 23.0 for loss, 17 quarterback hurries, six pass breakups, and four forced fumbles … Finished 10th in Arkansas history with 16.5 sacks … Notched at least one-half sack in 17 games, including three multi-sack performances … Booked 11.5 of his 16.5 career sacks against SEC opponents, including at least one-half sack in seven of his final 18 conference games … Collected 80 tackles, including 16.0 for loss, and 11.5 sacks over his junior and senior seasons.

Wise At Shrine Game:

When he used his burst and hands, he could control the OT and get to the RB (:01). It is tough to take on the double team at all-star games (:08). This is were I wanted to see him more, as an inside rusher. He got a hand on the OC and ORG and bulled them back a little. Then he got his hand up in the passing lane (:19). Stacked and shed the TE, and snapped back to the RB (:28). But he got fooled by the play action.

He absorbed the chip, and broke inside of the ORT, which was what he likes to to (:43). He always tried to play behind his eyes and hands, and you could see that when the QB threw he leaped up. Then watch the great hustle as he turned and chased the ball. He picked up the fumble and started running it until the whistle ruled it a drop (:54). And that is not fake hustle for the scouts. He hustled like that at Arkansas every game. You either have that all out all the time engine, or you don't.

He is an elite stack and shed two-gapper (1:09). Watch the shove off, and the explosion inside in the opposite direction. That was some great agility and burst in traffic (1:22). He showed some nice burst up field in the rush there (1:41). He will get fooled by play action, as he had run first responsibilities at Arkansas (2:00). Nice burst into a swim inside. Like Flowers, he was an edge guy who wanted to rush inside (2:08). He was not a speed rusher who was going to consistently bend the corner with speed and a Dip.

He will gets stuck on blocks reading the QB sometimes (2:16). He always plays with his hands, and extends the arms (2:26). Watch the speed to power as he put the ORT on skates, but then tripped when he tried a power swim inside (2:34). Not the best reps at inside rusher, but he drew double teams. Watch the hustle outside (2:51). He broke inside to hold up two blockers (2:59). Watch the burst past the ORT (3:07). That is very important, because he is strength, burst, and agility rusher. When he can use explosion and speed of any kind with his great hands and power, he is an NFL player. 

Watch the ORT reach out and grab and Hold Wise from behind. Then the RB doubled him. When he can use that burst off the snap, his strength and power can take over. Watch him grab the ORT's hands and run around him, and through the RB's Hold, with some surprising arc agility and strength, and Sack the QB (3:07). Now they have to double him on the edge, which opens things up for his teammates on the other side (3:27). Then he almost defeated the double to the QB again.

He got fooled by play action, but watch the great hustle inside (3:43). I mean, here he is out at the Wide-9. This is a 6-5-275 pound guy. Watch the burst up field, and the COD. He read it write, and watch the agility and quicks as he flew sideways down field to tackle the RB 15-yards down field on the run to the opposite side. I love the way he moves and hustles on the field (3:53). One of his signature moves is the stack and shed. Then he showed the torque to toss the blocker aside with hands and hip explosion (4:12). He found the RB in traffic and took him down again.

He just bulled the blocker back into the QB (4:21). Two quick swims and he was hitting the QB again (4:33). Watch the quick feet he used to set up the inside swim. Then he grabbed the RB's puny arm and swam over him with impressive quickness and burst. He is a big power DE, so anytime he showed speed, quickness, and explosion it is a big deal (4:46). He is such a freak athlete.

He burst up field nicely, and then slowed and turned sideways to play the Option. Read the hand off and made the tackle. He made it look easy (5:14). He powered inside on short yardage. Watch him torque the big ORT aside like a rag doll (5:42). He played with his hands and eyes and made the stop (5:51). He showed some speed to power to push the ORG back in the inside rush (6:38). Back inside at DT (6:46). He got stalemated by the big OG. But watch the spin back and burst outside to get in on the tackle of the WR out in the flat.

5-Tech, watch the great burst inside, with a power Rip that freed him to the QB. That is what you want to see from an inside rusher (6:56). He fell for the play action a little, but adjusted quickly and got back to the QB rolling outside to create some pressure to help create the incompletion (7:03). Watch this power as he slowed for a second, and knocked the ORT back almost off his feet (7:12). Watch the inside shoulder hit up (7:28). Then the elbow, and he is at the QB.

This is what he haven't seen. Watch the great Dip around the OLT. Then the great strip sack. If he adds that speed more to his NFL arsenal, he is going to be a good one. That was a huge play for him (7:37). Now they have to double him just to run the offense. He swam over the RB's chip. Then watch the great hip torque on the inside club (8:03). Inside rusher. They had to double team him inside. That always helps the outside guys (8:14). Watch the great swim that got him away from the double, but the ORG was able to grab his shirt underneath (8:23). This is where his long legs and high hips hurt him.

They put him back outside for the last two snaps. He ran by the TE, and had to swim over the RB again. But he was still able to put speed to power and got the OLT moving backwards. Then he benched him back with his powerful upper body, and slammed the OLT into the QB and made him panic (8:31). He was such a clutch player. When his team needed pressure on the QB to win he got it (8:41). He got doubled by the TE and RB, as they both took a swipe at him when they passed. But he ignored them this time as he stacked the OLT up and back. Then watch the quick shed and swipe at the QB as he threw. Game over.
