Gregory Rousseau NFL Draft Profile
Physically, Gregory Rousseau has the perfect build for an NFL edge rusher. Despite standing 6-6, Rousseau has a special ability to bend and get under matchups. He is an all-around athlete, proved by the fact that he is a former wide receiver. Rousseau also possesses the physical ability to play and thrive on the interior, with length and speed that will make him a matchup nightmare wherever he lines up.
Rousseau is still filling out his frame as an edge rusher, so his overall power needs work. The Miami rusher is still raw, working on his overall set of moves as an edge. He has struggled more against offensive tackles, which could very obviously be a red flag for the NFL. Rousseau also has an injury history, after an ankle injury his freshman year limited him to 17 snaps.
