PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT

Howard Cross III plays predominantly as a defensive tackle, often aligning in a 3-technique position. His quickness off the snap and ability to disrupt plays in the backfield make him a good fit for defensive schemes that prioritize penetration and disruption from their interior linemen. However, his size might limit his effectiveness in schemes that require more stout run defense and gap control.

SCOUTING REPORT

Howard Cross III has been a crucial part of Notre Dame's defensive line, showcasing his athleticism and technical skills. His undersized frame is mitigated by his quickness and strong lower body, allowing him to effectively disrupt both run and pass plays.
