Couldn't find a recent thread on him, but I think he's a player to note for us. He's a big nose tackle, weighing in at the Senior Bowl at 6'2", 341 lbs. At the Senior Bowl, he showed great strength against the run, in addition to some surprising athleticism for his size. Although a lot of nose tackles quickly earn the title "lazy" (something I generally disagree with), he was commended for his hustle on the field and between plays. He routinely occupied two blockers during the game. There's the real question of quality of competition, but I think his performance at the Senior Bowl helps somewhat answer that question. He's an under-the-radar prospect who's moving up draft boards and who needs some polish, but I think he's a very serious option in the second round, meaning we could free ourselves up to go a different direction in the first.

So what are the general opinions of him?

Yea, good thread. I had heard the name a few times up til now, hadn't seen any videos or anything. He's build like a truck. Reminds me of a stouter Michael Brockers. Very little flab for such a big guy. I'd be ok with him in the 2nd, might even be my favorite 2nd round prospect if we don't go DT in the 1st.

We would have to take him in the 2nd because he wont be available in the 4th.

He is build like a fire hydrant. Reminds me of Geno Atkins.

This is a fella I am really interested in. He just seems like a machine and there's a lot of good stuff about him circulating around.

Between Williams at DT, Thomas/Bakhtiari at OT, & Patton/Wheaton/etc at WR, we will have a lot to choose from imo for our 2nd rounder methinks.
