DE - BUF
Expert NoteView More Notes
Rousseau is what happens when NFL defensive coaches get into a lab and create an EDGE rusher. Rousseau is 6'6/260 and has absolute vines for arms. He has tremendous length for the position and he's still building out his frame. From an upside perspective, it's hard to not look at Rousseau from a physical standpoint and get excited about what he could be as a pass-rusher. However, with that said, Rousseau is still very raw and needs work in a lot of different areas. He's more of an athlete than a pass-rusher, which is evidenced in his hand usage. He doesn't rush with a plan and really has no set pass rush moves in his repertoire. He has all the physical tools to get there one day, but it's still a projection. He has great first step explosiveness and he will easily be able to get around more stiff tackles at the NFL level. He's raw in run defending and needs to learn how to keep his eyes in the backfield. He also needs to develop the ability to shed blocks and keep lineman at bay in order to be a more dominant force in the run game. Shows grit and a high motor on tape. Willing to keep fighting and attacking. Good tackler in open space. Still needs development in his understanding of the game and how to refine his game. Good bend off the edge. Shows the potential to grow in this area, as well. Overall, Rousseau has all the potential in the world and it will be up to him to see if he can develop. He's very inexperienced, especially after opting out of the 2020 season, but if he's given time and receives good coaching, he could be one of the league's best pass-rushers.

Gregory Rousseau agrees to terms on four-year deal with the Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills rookie DE Gregory Rousseau has agreed to terms with the team on a standard four-year deal with a guarantee of $11.3M, per Adam Schefter.
Rousseau was the 30th overall pick and the top selection made by the Bills in the 2021 NFL Draft. He didn't play in 2020 due to COVID-19 but recorded an impressive 15.5 sacks during his 2019 season at the University of Miami. The massive 6'7", 265-pound defensive end also racked up 34 tackles, two forced fumbles, and a pass deflection in the same 2019 season and will likely earn reps along a stout Bills' defensive line throughout his rookie year.
