Oshane Ximines Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: Oshane Ximines has the skill set that has the NFL community salivating about his draft stock…Ximines has the size and quickness that translates to the next level…quickness off the line of scrimmage…Ximines can move laterally down the line and his quickness and acceleration is apparent as he finds the ball carrier and makes the play…a versatile athlete who can play off the edge in any scheme, 4-3 or 3-4…a variety of pass rushing moves…a smart player who can diagnose the play…

WEAKNESSES: Oshane Ximines needs to develop additional physicality and to play through contact with a higher level of success…not very strong in the lower half…you have to wonder if he will be blown off the ball at the next level…a liability in run defense with his slight frame…Ximines does not have that elite level of quickness off the ball—which given his stature—he will need to find success at the NFL level…

COMP: Jerry Hughes

OVERALL: Oshane Ximines has gone from under the radar, small-school prospect to fully under the NFL Draft microscope in just a few short weeks…Ximines should appeal to all teams at the NFL level as he is scheme diverse…far from a finalized prospect—Ximines will need a lot of work and refinement to develop into a full-time starter at the NFL level…he has the frame to add some weight and strength, in particular, in the lower half…the Scouting Combine is going to be large for Oshane Ximines to solidify his value in the eyes of scouts and GMs…at the end of the day, I would expect him to be selected between the 1st-2nd round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
