Shemar Stewart is a 6-6/238 (according to his Hudl profile) strongside defensive end from Monsignor Pace High in Opa Locka, FL with a 4.7 40-yard dash. Rated a five-star by 247Sports, he is also the number one SDE in the nation. In his 247 profile, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, LSU, and Miami are all described as “warm” in the race for this 2022 play-maker.
Barton Simmons of 247 described him as follows:
Long, lean, muscular defensive lineman with no bad weight, an imposing frame, long arms and thick lower half. Body type has the potential to continue to bulk up as a jumbo edge rusher or even kick inside long term given early stage of his development. Plays to his size on film. Brutish pass rusher that has an effective long-arm, can walk offensive tackles back to the quarterback and can win with speed. Has top end combine athleticism. Controls and sheds blocks effectively against the run. Has downfield speed in pursuit. Very limited nuance or finesse in his pass rush. Has some stiffness in space. Plays too high right now but can get away with it. Impact Power Five starter with the potential to be a first round NFL Draft pick and a candidate to be a future No. 1 overall pick but needs continued refinement over the next two years to approach that kind of ceiling.247Sports
