6-1/293 Texas Christian
Pros: Has a nice motor and shows good strength and potential at the point of attack. Shows some ability to get off blocks. Has a decent first step and an effective bull rusher.
Cons: Not going to beat the blocker with his quickness. Lets blockers get their hands on him too much, and won't be as effective getting off blocks at the next level because of it.
Overview: He's a nice effort player that can stick at nose at the next level. Productive, with 10 TFL and 6 sacks as a senior.
NFL Forecast: He could be a decent rotation player at nose in either the 3-4 or 4-3. I like his potential a bit better in the 3-4, but he's not going to be a big contributor. But a guy that can spell a guy like Casey Hampton for a few plays each game. The best you can hope for is another Kelly Gregg, but not going to be as good as Gregg. The type of player that could stick for a while as a reserve 3-4 player, but eventually I think his team will find a player with more upside to replace him.
ATL Forecast: He could help the Falcons rotation, but lacks upside to really be a worthwhile developmental guy in Atlanta. Would be hard- pressed getting off the bench and making plays. Probably would be gone from Atlanta within two or three seasons.
Value: Not worth drafting, but a 3-4 team should sign him as a free agent.
