Strengths: Appearing at number one on Bruce Feldman’s freaks list, Kwity Paye is a truly athletic specimen. He has on film a 6.3 second 3 cone drill which would put him in the 99th percentile (JT Thomas is the only player to have a sub 6.3 second 3 cone on record at the combine). Paye has both excellent instincts and football IQ. Knows how to identify blocking schemes and positions himself where he needs to be accordingly. Utilizes a bevy of pass rush moves and uses them well. Has very active hands that help keep the offensive lineman guessing. Has incredible flexibility around the edge, able to bend very well.
Weaknesses: Paye could stand to improve his pass rush plan on an overall level. While he is impactful, Paye can be a little inconsistent. His counters can definitely be improved upon. While he does have good bend, it is not elite and will have to soften angles using his great first step. He isn’t the longest player in the world either
|Grade||89/100 Mid/Late First Rounder|
When the NFL evaluates Kwity Paye, they will find he has a little bit of everything. Not only is he a hyper athlete, but he has a high football IQ and really good technique. While he can go into just about any system and thrive, I think he projects best in a 4-3 where he can moved all over and used creatively as a pass rusher.
