Kamalei Correa

Boise State
EDGE #8
Junior 6’2″ 243

  • DE/OLB Pass rusher
  • Played both positions for Boise, switched between LE, RE and OLB
  • Decent first step quickness, not elite, but by no means slow.
  • Knows how to get to the QB and registered a lot of sacks in college
  • Was asked to drop back in coverage, mainly hook zone and flats, fluid enough to cover these areas.
  • Never going to beat a double team due to lack of strength
  • Needs to become better at transferring the speed to power to consistently give OT trouble. Once engulfed becomes a non-factor.
  • Average array of pass rush moves, but needs to work on better hand usage.
  • Good Tackler, will wrap up in the open field and not just hit and hope.
  • All Mountain West 2nd team 2015

Correa had a productive college career registering 20 sacks and 5FF in 3 years at Boise State. Was moved around the Boise State defense playing both DE and also OLB, he is an OLB in a 3-4 at the next level who will more than likely start out as a DPR until he becomes stronger at stcaking and shedding blocks from larger OT. A few 4-3 teams may give him a chance to play DE but his lack of strength is a concern.

With how the NFL is heading more and more towards the pass players like Correa will find a home on a team as a 3rd down pass rusher. If he can add strength to his frame then he could become an every down player but for the time being he is limited to attacking the QB
