Pos: 
Massive nose tackle who shows great athleticism. Displays solid first-step quickness, bends his knees and plays with excellent leverage. Quickly gets his hands up and displays good change of direction and explosiveness at the point of attack. Commands double and even triple-team blocks but easily holds his ground, bull rushes his way up the field and collapses the pocket. Athletic for his size, takes up a lot of space and consistently penetrates the line of scrimmage to make plays in the backfield.
Neg: 
Must develop more moves to get off blocks. Hand technique runs hot and cold. May be a little too large.
Analysis: 
Rush has rare size, good athleticism and big upside. He must properly condition himself, but Rush is a nose tackle who could also play as a conventional tackle in a four-man line. If he's willing to do the little things off the field to make himself a better player, Rush will have a career in the NFL.
