Senior Bowl Practice Notes (Defense)

The one bright spot for the Defense this past season was the improved play of Victor Abiamiri. He became a strong pass rusher and improved considerably with his Run Defending. He will make a very good NFL player and showed what he had this week at the Senior Bowl. Notes by Scout.com

Victor Abiamiri/Notre Dame

Ht: 6.044 Wt: 271
Arm: 33 1/2 Hand: 10 1/4

Monday Practice Notes: Gets upfield very well for a player of his size with great reaction to the ball. Does not move very well laterally against the run.

Tuesday Practice Notes: Athletic prospect who shows the ability to change directions well. Dips his shoulder off the edge in his pass rush. Does struggle to get off of blocks when engaged and needs to be quicker on his counter moves in his pass rush. Some teams have inquired about him possibly being a 34 outside linebacker.

Wednesday Practice Notes: Athletically looks the part but had a quiet day. Part of the reason is because he struggled to get off of blocks. Change of direction during pass rush drills was not as stellar as was perceived during yesterday’s practice.

Thursday Practice Notes: In pass rushing situation, Abiamiri does not posses the greatest initial moves but did an especially nice job on his countermoves today. One mental breakdown did allow a back to break contain to make a big run to the outside during inside drill.

Analysis: Physically there are not many who are on Abiamiri’s level. One of the more impressive looking prospects down in Mobile, his overall play was not as stellar. Inconsistent in many areas of his game as the week progresses, especially struggling with getting off blocks at times. Some teams are looking at him as a possible 34 outside linebacker. A talented prospect who will likely go higher than his play would indicate.
