2019 NFL Draft Profile: Boise State EDGE Jabril Frazier
The latest in a line of Boise State pass rushers hopes to find a role in the NFL.
The Broncos have a solid pass rushing track record.
Frazier saw the field in 43 games over his four years in Boise. Combined with his athleticism, he used that experience to land himself on the All-Mountain West second-team defense in 2017 and first team in 2018. Compiling an impressive 138 tackles, 24.5 for a loss, and 18 sacks, Frazier proved to be disruptive when on the field. He has the size to move to the next level at 6’4″ and 240 pounds.

As mentioned, he has the size to move up to the NFL, combine that with his athleticism and versatility, he is going to stay on a lot of teams radars. He has a frame that can put on 20-25 pounds to move up a defensive end or can stay where he is and be a versatile linebacker. Toughness, both physically and mentally, is another strength for Frazier . After the 2016 season, he had surgeries to repair his knee, shoulder, and ankle… All of which were on the same day. He also had to sit out his freshman year due to academic issues. Frazier overcame any and every obstacle put before him, to make it onto the field and be an impact player for the Broncos.
The fact that Frazier had to be surgically put back together after the 2016 season and has either missed or left other games with injury is a red flag for some NFL teams. He also can get too aggressive with his play reads and get sucked in on play fakes in the backfield. This shouldn’t be a huge issue with how athletic he is, but it leads to him having issues in coverage.
Frazier is another Bronco whose athleticism and playmaking ability may cause a team could take a flyer on him in the 7th or possibly the 6th, but it is more likely that he will get a call shortly after the draft ends.
