Jarius Wynn
6-3/272 Georgia
4.94 Senior

Pros: Is a capable bull rusher that has a nice swim move. Has a nice motor and will chase down ballcarriers. Has nice strength and potential to play the run.

Cons: Lacks first step and won't beat any NFL tackles off the snap around the edge. Can have trouble at the point of attack and doesn't get off blocks.

Overview: Wynn is most effective when Georgia uses a 3-man front and he lines up in the 5-technique. Just lacks the burst to be an impact rush end. For JUCO transfer that played both tackle and end at Georgia that finished career with 4 career sacks.

NFL Forecast: If he can bulk up, then he might be a decent DE in a 3-4 scheme. If he bulks up enough, he could potentially play DT in a 4-3 scheme. Won't be a great pass rusher, but could be a decent disruptor in the 3-4 scheme and an OK rotational guy in the 4-3. As a 4-3 end, unless he really becomes a lock-down run stopper, he's not going to offer much value. I like his potential for the 3-4 the most, and while he could start, he won't be anything special there. He'll be a 1-3 sack guy that gets most of them due to his motor and effort. He plays hard which you like, but is probably another 10-15 pounds away from impact the NFL.

ATL Forecast: The Falcons would probably be best off trying Wynn inside than outside. He has greater potential as a tackle in the 4-3 than as an end. Either way, he could be a nice practice squad player for a year or so as he bulks up and develops. Probably wouldn't be a starter, but could be a decent rotational player. Won't be a great pass rusher or run stopper, but would be a nice effort player that would give the team's starters a needed rest.

Value: For a 3-4 team, he might be worth a seventh round pick as a developmental prospect.
