Harrison Phillips doesn’t care if he plays in a 4-3 or 3-4 defense in the NFL. The former Stanford defensive lineman knows he can get the job done regardless of alignment, and he said there are many who agree with him.
Phillips recently spoke on SiriusXM NFL Radio as he prepares for the 2018 NFL Draft later this month.
“Every defensive line coach that I’ve talked with has a position for me in their defense. Doesn’t matter if its a 4-3, 3-4. They know I can rush the passer and stop the run,” Phillips said.
Being versatile is beneficial for Phillips’ draft stock. Still, Phillips played in a 3-4 defense at Stanford and may be better suited in a 3-4 scheme.
Phillips recorded 158 tackles and 16 sacks in four seasons with the Cardinal. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein projects Phillips to be drafted in the second round.
