Noah Sewell Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Sewell has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- He’s a high-motor player, and Sewell shows good enough hand use, as well as a tight spin move, to win as an edge rusher
- He can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level
- Good closing speed with long arms to drag down quarterbacks and running backs
- As good as Sewell is attacking downhill, he can get overaggressive and overrun plays, opening up cutback lanes for counter runs
- As explosive as he is as an athlete, he needs to become a better finisher

Would Noah Sewell Fit on the Packers?
The Packers could use some edge depth as the pass rush faltered late in the season. I don’t think he fits perfectly in the system that the Packers are trying to run but his versatility is interesting. As I stated above, the OLB/Edge position is full of good prospects and every GM will have their order a little different.
Check Out Another Prospect That Could Fit For the Packers
What concerns me most about Sewell is stopping the run. Quay Walker had trouble with being overaggressive and I think the Packers would prefer to fix that rather than bring in another over-aggressive linebacker. However, if the Packers are confident that they can coach the over-aggressiveness out, Sewell would be another good pick for the Packers.
