*MSA Rating: The average score of a prospect’s market share production, strength of schedule and age percentile scores

*Explosive Lower Body Strength Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s vertical, broad jump and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Speed Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s 40-yard dash and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Flexibility Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s short shuttle, 3-Cone and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

 

Metric Analysis: Malik McDowell has a very strong data profile projecting to 3-4 defensive end. Above average market share production and near elite speed for his size. McDowell’s explosiveness score doesn’t meet the Pro Bowl threshold, but he has the same explosiveness score as the only outlier in Richard Seymour. In fact, Seymour and McDowell are almost identical athletes on paper. Thus, I’d project McDowell as a long-term starter to potential Pro Bowl caliber 3-4 defensive end.

 

ATH Comp: Richard Seymour
