Devon Torrence Scouting Report
Devon Torrence
Devon Torrence - Ohio St. (HT: 5-11⅛ - WT: 199)
Combine 40: 4.63 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 30 of 45

Positives: Has average height and weight for the position, frame is solid... Durability not a concern, has not missed any substantial time due to injury... Is aggressive and physical, makes up for lack of speed and range with intensity and good work ethic... Has above-average ball skills, has good hands and plays the ball well in the air... Is a solid zone defender, plays best in short zone coverage and run-support situations... Appears to have good strength for his frame, pretty good at taking on blocks and bigger ball carriers... Does pretty well wrapping up in space, breaks down consistently and lowers pad level well.

Negatives: Did not run well at the combine... Some scouts may question his dedication, has taken a serious interest in professional baseball... Never had outstanding production at Ohio State, only recorded four career interceptions... Looks a little stiff in the hips, especially when running with receivers at the break, is prone to giving up too much cushion... Gets too high in the backpedal and at the break, needs to work on staying low and keeping his feet under him... Not a great man defender, press technique is not polished, will get beat deep.
