A four-star recruit from Virginia, outside linebacker Doug Randolph’s game centers on his strength and athleticism. He is a quick, resilient pass rusher whose agility allows him to maneuver in between offensive linemen in pursuit of the quarterback.
Randolph plays hard from whistle to whistle, bursting off the line at the snap and not stopping until he takes down the ball carrier. With his strength, Randolph often pushes through blocks and double teams, capping off the play with a tackle for loss.
Randolph also spent time on the other side of the ball as a tight end. Aided by his powerful build and steady hands, Randolph is most effective with mid- to long-range passes and as an alert blocker for his backs.
