Scouting DL Maurice Bennett

Mississippi Scout
Posted Feb 18, 2011

There is another Bennett roaming the Jaguars' defensive line, Maurice, who carries many of the same traits as his older brother, Byron.

Name: Maurice Bennett
Madison Central (MS)
Defensive Line
6' 2", 280-pounds
Ole Miss, MSU, USM, FSU, Oklahoma, UCLA Ranking: 3-Star evaluation: You see a lot of his brother, Bryon Bennett, in Maurice on the high school level. Both played defensive end but have the bodies of a defensive tackle. He is not the quickest end, but nor should he be when weigh 280 and are playing out of position. He is quick off of the ball and brings a lot of lower body strength and uses good leverage to clog up the lanes.
