Cowboys' Potential First-Round Pick: Calijah Kancey, a Game-Changer for the Defensive Line

Top Reasons to Buy In: Penetration Skills Flexibility and variety of ways to beat blocks Motor and competitive toughness Undersized, one-gapping defensive tackle who is explosive and productive. He’s a strong and determined player, but Kancey is still going to be a hit-or-miss run defender due to his lack of mass and length. While he will get pushed around at times, his first-step quickness and short memory allow him to make tackles in the backfield. He’s a nightmare for offenses as a pass rusher. His twitchy feet can slide and reset points of attack. His leverage and motor are often too much for guards to handle alone. Kancey might be most effective as a rotational run defender and full-time, sub-package rusher, but his size will not define him in the NFL.
