Team Fit

DAL

BUF

Strengths 

High end athletic traits and physical tools for a defensive lineman. Great length that is well utilized to keep blockers off. Good set of pass rush moves especially on the interior to beat blockers through the gap. Gets lineman off balance with quickness than seamlessly switches to power move to win. Gets skinny when shooting gap. Experience at every position along the front

Weaknessess

Inconsistent play throughout the tape. Motor is questionable. Appeared to take plays off especially if the play went away from him. Stalled out on rushes if leverage wasn't immediately won. Cannot hold ground vs double teams. Too often moved off spot in the run game. Lacks the explosive first step and bend to consistently get around the edge in the NFL. Hands are quick but not violent

Big Picture

Leal came to the Aggies as a highly touted high school prospect. He started every game as a true freshman and all three years for Texas A&M. The team utilized his athletic traits by using him as a chess piece for their defense. Leal played all across the defensive front and was moved around almost every play going from nose tackle to playing out on the end. He is a difficult projection however because he was not consistent at any of the positions. His best work was done along the interior and a 3T in an aggressive scheme is likely where he would have the most chance to succeed. He needs to work on gaining leverage and holding ground in the run game. He also needs to play with a consistently high motor more often as when he turns it on, he flashed highlight reel ability. Leal should provide good value to a team's defensive line on Day 2 of the draft.
