Jeremy Navarre
6-3/285 Maryland
4.97 Senior

Pros: Has a relentless motor and never gives up on a play. Has a decent swim and rip move, but is best as a bull rusher, using his solid upper body strength. Does a decent job getting leverage vs. the run.

Cons: Lacks quickness and won't bring much pressure from the edge. Lacks burst and can't close on ballcarrier in space. Gets pushed around by stronger blockers.

Overview: He plays the 3, 5, and 7 techniques in Maryland's 3-4 scheme, but probably fits best as a 3 or 5-technique guy at the next level. He'll need to get bigger, but has one of the best motors in this draft class. He was a four-year starter. A state champion wrestler in high school which makes you understand his playing style.

NFL Forecast: If Navarre can get bigger and better vs. the run, then he can stick at the next level. Will never be a factor as a pass rusher, since he's a pure effort player. But he can impress coaches with his effort, motor, and work ethic to make a roster despite athletic limitation. He has good strength, but needs to get bigger and stronger. Could potentially play inside in the 4-3 or as an end in the 3-4. But he's a guy that his future will be as a run stuffer rather than pass rusher. I like him more in the 3-4 at this point. I don't think he can start, but certainly can help a team's rotation.

ATL Forecast: He has potential to help the rotation as a defensive tackle for the Falcons. He'll need some time to get bigger and bulk up, so he'd probably only be a practice squad option for the first year or so. But could be adding solid minutes and snaps as a reserve run stopper in two or three seasons. Won't be a starter, but could be a decent backup option. Won't be a star, but good enough to be a fourth tackle.

Value: Don't draft Navarre, but he's one of those undrafted guys that stands a good chance to make your roster.
