Strengths

Prototypical length and overall size. Exceptional run defender. Reacts to what he sees and makes the play. Does a quality job using length and strength to shed blockers. Quick first step. Gets upfield in a hurry to create penetration. Very good movement skills for his size. Great pursuit. Works down the line of scrimmage to chase ball carriers. Rangy tackler. Sets the edge. Plus play recognition. Rarely fooled on zone read or play action. Strong hands. Possesses a powerful club/strike move rushing on the edge. Very effective on stunts. Can rush the passer from the interior in passing situations. Best as a 4-3 defensive end but has the athleticism to be a standup pass rusher and drop back in coverage when needed. Experience lining up on both sides of the formation.

 

Weaknesses

Average bend turning the corner on speed rush. Doesn’t have a diverse set of pass rush moves. Didn’t deflect enough passes at the line of scrimmage. Not an overly forceful hitter.

Conclusion

Overall, Gross-Matos is a long, rangy edge defender that enters the league well-equipped to stop the run and should only get better as a pass rusher. I think his best fit would be as a versatile defensive end in a 4-3 scheme that can make plays both at the point of attack and as a backside defender.
