Christian Darrisaw Highlights
Christian Darrisaw Draft Profile
Darrisaw has some of the greatest power and strength in this draft. When he gets his hands on defenders, he can punish them. He has also shown more than capable of stopping power rushers in their tracks with a single punch. Darrisaw maintains his center of gravity and never overextends. Playing in the ACC, he has plenty of experience and tape against premier edge rushers.
Darrisaw has been prone to waiting too long and being too patient in his pass protection. He also played in a run-heavy scheme, which limits his overall experience in pass protection against edge rushers, which certainly is a con in the pass-happy NFL. While Darrisaw doesn’t overextend, his footwork could still be improved.
Christian Darrisaw Draft Projection
Christian Darrisaw is currently projected to be drafted by the Minnesota Vikings at No. 14.
