NFL Draft Scouting Report: Glen Antoine

Idaho
6’4” 321 Senior
Defensive Tackle #15

 

  • True nose tackle
  • Can split double teams
  • Wins one on one matchups in the run game
  • Plays low
  • Doesn’t quit on a play
  • Doesn’t fire off the ball
  • Will fall in draft due to lack of pass rush

 

Glen Antoine is a native from Round Rock, Texas. He had a strong final season with the Idaho defense. He helped lead an Idaho team to a better performance than any team in the program’s recent history by reaching a 9-4 record. Antoine played in the College Gridiron Showcase this offseason and met with several NFL teams.

 

Antoine is a true 3-4 defensive tackle, meaning that he has a big body and frame and plays low because he’s tasked with battling double teams almost every play. He showed his ability to split the double teams on a consistent basis. He also kept offensive linemen off of his linebackers so his defense could make a play. His attitude and selflessness is exactly what teams want in a defensive tackle.

 

In our interview with Antoine, he spoke about his coaches trying to set up plays where they would have their defensive lineman in one on one situations. When he was in that situation, he often was able to shed his blockers while tracking the ball carrier.

 

The biggest knock against Antoine is his inability to generate a pass rush. We’ve seen solid defensive linemen fall in the NFL Draft because they couldn’t consistently pressure the quarterback.

 

Round Value: 6th

Solid in the run game and can be a true nose tackle but lacks pass rushing moves.

In our chat with Antoine, he said he compared his game to Vince Wilfork. While I agree he can be a big presence on the interior defensive front, I don’t think he is quite on Wilfork’s level.
