Kwity Paye Highlights

Kwity Paye NFL Draft Profile

Strengths

Kwity Paye has shown clear improvement every single season, making him a great prospect for a young defense. He has a strong build for an edge rusher, packed with a lot of power. His bull rush will make it a long day for any offensive tackle. Paye is also able to sink low on tackles and play the run as well.

Weaknesses

While Paye’s bull rush technique is great, he doesn’t bring much else. He hasn’t shown the ability to set up offensive linemen, and his main strategy is to use his power and build to go through his matchup. While Paye is built strong, he hasn’t had much success on the interior at all, meaning he is a true edge, but he doesn’t have the arsenal of moves that most top edge rusher draft prospects do.
