Analysis:

Scott Crichton is a dominant defensive end from Oregon State. Crichton is a very instinctive player that relies on anticipation to make plays. He uses his hands effectively but can also bull-rush. Crichton has a great motor and always looks like he is working hard. He does not give up on his pursuit. Crichton is smart and was a leader at Oregon State. He is a very physical player and a strong tackler.

While Crichton possesses good size at 6'3", 273 lbs, he is not incredibly athletic.  Crichton also plays to high and shows stiffness. This limits his potential in the NFL. Although he may not be the next Jared Allen, he can develop into a solid defensive end with his work ethic. His coach Mike Riley stated, "He has a great ability to stay focused and he'll be driven to get better -- he won't be distracted by the bling of the NFL" (NFL.com). Riley also thinks that Crichton can be utilized best in a 4-3 defense.
