Crosby raved on attack stacks from MAC and had a penchant for coming into attack the backcourt and devastation.He presented a consistent production in sacks and tackles for losses and rallied in his three years in East -Michigan 20 sacks and a breathtaking TFL 41. After he had announced himself to the draft, he was invited to Kombinat, where he abso all his drills crushed his blood and made his name known to those who may not have heard of him yet. He was in the top five on almost every drill bit in his position and tested better than many others who had more than more promising prospects.
Offensive linemen had their hands full with Crosby's big body and his ability to throw blocks with ease. Crosby is rarely picked up by blockers, it's like trying to block smoke. He is slippery for a guy of his size and never abandons a game. He uses his superior length to create sales and often get his hands on the ball or ball carrier. His reflexes are great and he's a lot more nervous than you would expect given his slim build. Crosby is an experienced pass rusher, but equally good at run defense, and his ability to gain a physical advantage is above average.
This long and spindly frame is Crosby's best asset and also the biggest potential weakness because He has no muscle definition and does not have the strength that most edge rushers possess to deal with the heavy attacks in the area NFL to cope. This is not the MAC and Crosby must necessarily get bigger and stronger. He could stand to pack about 20 pounds of pure muscle into his body.
He is all limbs at the moment and must become stronger and bigger at his core. If he does that, he also has to learn how to use his hands more effectively in noise, as he is unable to perform NFL attacks the way he is used to. He also can not let potential tackles go away, as his lack of upper body strength has led to some of the ball bearers in college being torn from his grasp. That will not fly in the pros. A season with Deuce Gruden should make Crosby an absolute monster because he has all the athleticism one could wish for a 4-3 defensive end.
Prior to the Combine, Crosby was considered sixth or sixth seventh rounder. After his fantastic show in Indianapolis, he moved into the second day. For Mike Mayock, landing him in fourth place is a bargain and he could be the best choice for the Raiders. He has more potential than many of his players and can be the real bull in a defensive end of the china shop that the Raiders missed last year.
Fit With Raiders
The Raiders had to add some noise to their noise and that's what they did, first with Clelin Ferrell and then with Crosby. When Crosby develops to its full potential, Ferrell and Ferrell will be fantastic endpoints in the bookend. With Maurice Hurst in the middle, opposing quarterbacks will feel the heat from all directions at all times. Crosby may not start right away, but if he does, he'll bring an opportunistic-style raid into the Raider defense he's been missing lately. Take a look at Maxx Crosby
