Doesn’t exhibit much of a burst off the football in the pass game. Struggles to keep his pad level down when asked to redirect and lacks the lateral agility to side step a block and accelerate up the field. Simply doesn’t exhibit a real explosive element to his game. Struggles to generate much leverage on his bull rusher also. Allows himself to get high at the point and doesn’t do a good enough job extending his arms in order to control blocks.
Impression: Possesses a thick frame, but isn’t as impressive in the run game as his size would indicate and doesn’t offer much as a pass rusher. Isn’t much more than a camp body at this stage."
Positive: Strong, interior player who takes up space in the middle. Explodes off the snap, plays with good pad level, and has a solid first step to the action. Flashes the ability to get out laterally and chase the action to the sidelines. Uses his hands to protect himself, plays with good knee bend, and gets underneath opponents. Tough to move off the line and bulrushes blockers off the ball.
Negative: Must develop more moves with his hands. Possesses just a short burst of speed. Marginal pass rusher.
Analysis: Laurent is a short, wide-bodied defender whose main responsibility is to occupy blockers and allow others to make plays on the ball. He lacks the size to be a true nose tackle and the athleticism to play in a conventional four-man front , but he could be a rotational lineman used in short-yardage situations."
Weaknesses: His strength at the POA. Can't anchor at the POA and hold ground. His closing burst is below average, as he has trouble closing on ball carriers and quarterbacks.
Projection: Seventh rounder or UDFA. Laurent's quickness and pass rushing ability may be enough to get him drafted and compete for a roster spot as a rotational defensive tackle."
