Vinny Curry DE Marshall #99 Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 260

Strengths: Adequate height. Good overall size. A smart, patient player. Does a great job playing to the situation; rarely hurts himself by being overaggressive in his effort to get into the backfield, a common flaw among college ends. Has the ability to be a realiable three-down lineman. Effective pass rusher with a variety of moves. Has the quick burst to be an effective speed rusher, but also the strength to use the bull rush on occasion. Experienced lining up at end in 3-4 and 4-3 formations. Has been productive in his few opportunities against elite competition (great game vs Ohio State in 2010). Could potentially play linebacker in a 3-4 system. Weaknesses: Athleticism is marginal; will struggle dropping into coverage if moved to linebacker. Marginal speed. May not be a consistent pass-rush threat at the next level. Lacks the speed to make plays in pursuit, but does put forth the effort. Level of competition is a minor concern; hasn’t proven himself against top opponents week after week. Comments: Curry lacks the measurables to be considered an elite prospect, but he has a well-rounded skill set which should make him an effective starter at the next level. He’s probably best suited to play with his hand on the ground in a 4-3 system, but 3-4 teams will likely consider him an option at linebacker. Videos:
