  • Welcome Chris Rumph II, Edge, Duke (Pick #118)



    Pre-Draft Analysis


    Rumph is built like an off-the-ball linebacker and has experience playing there, but he primarily lined up on the edge in college and probably will play there in certain situations in the NFL. He has good upside as a pass-rusher thanks to his length, burst, bend and closing speed. He's a disruptive run-defender who is at his best slipping blocks. But he'll have a hard time holding his ground at defensive end in the NFL. -- Steve Muench

      His father — of the same name — is currently a defensive line coach for the Chicago Bears. Rumph was a college linebacker who enjoyed a well-traveled college coaching career before breaking into the NFL with the Houston Texans.

      - the Staley connection?

      TT drafting guys with NFL lineage.

              Will be interested to see how Staley uses him. Very technical pass rusher, lots of moves, but undersized as an every down EDGE. I know he weighed in around 245 at the pro day but his best football was at a much smaller size (225-230ish).

                  Now, if you excuse me, I have some Charger memories to suppress.

                        Analysis

                        Overview
                        Rumph is more of a litmus test than a prospect with a defined position. As a 3-4 outside linebacker, teams will worry about his edge-setting power. As a designated pass rusher, teams could have a hard time pinpointing his draft value. That said, if a team sees him as an explosive athlete with a knack for finding the pocket, it will draft the talent and figure out the rest. There is no question that his lean frame and lack of play strength will cause him to take some bad losses, but that shouldn't overshadow his ability to make plays on the other side of the line despite his strength deficiencies. He's an instinctive rusher with the skill and traits to win outside or inside and can activate a long-arm bull rush from a position of leverage from time to time. He has the talent to play off the ball on occasion as a chase linebacker and can be activated as a rusher from a variety of entry points to further stress the protection. There is some boom/bust in his projection, but I see an ascending NFL rush talent.
