The New Orleans Saints 2016 6th round selection could prove to be reliable, depending on the workload given to him during this coming season.
The DE out of Miami proved to be very productive with his college team. In his tenure with Miami, Muhammad compiled in 17 games, 60 tackles, (39 solo), 10.5 tackles for a loss, and 7 sacks. Including, 5 sacks in 7 starts in the 2015 season. The main reason Muhammad didn’t have as many games was unfortunately due to off the field issues. Although this may be concerning, Muhammad will be working to getting his head in the right mindset come this season.
It was obviously proven that Muhammad, when he was with Miami, was very talented. He has the necessary skills, and talents to thrive with the New Orleans Saints. If given the opportunity, Muhammad could really shine as an up and coming defensive end. The only question is with all of the current defensive ends the Saints possess, how much playing time will Muhammad receive?
2017 Season Sack Projection:
Al-Quadin Muhammad is a talented prospect, with the potential of succeeding in the National Football League. If he moves up the ranks and receives playing time, expect the projection to rise.
