Cover 1 Take: Physical Freak who may produce more value over 2nd contract than he did during his rookie deal as he learns to refine his game & utilize his physical gifts.

Summary: Javon Kinlaw, standing at 6’5″ and weighing 319 pounds with impressive arm length, boasts elite measurables akin to Star Lotulelei and Jordan Phillips. While showcasing explosive movements and remarkable power, his inconsistent hand placement and technique pose challenges. Kinlaw’s physical abilities make him versatile for both Nose Tackle and 3 technique roles, with elite knockback ability evident. However, he struggles with pad level inconsistency against combination blocks, impacting his anchoring ability. While he lacks agility and a diverse pass rush arsenal, his bull rush remains formidable, often overpowering offensive linemen. Despite areas for improvement, Kinlaw’s raw talent and upside make him a compelling prospect worth investing in for teams willing to bet on his traits.
