I like Adrian Tracy and wouldn't mind adding him in the later rounds.
The kid from Washington with the unusual last name is a good OLB/DE prospect. The name blanks me. He performed after Suh at the combine.
Daniel Te'o-Nesheim (I'm just going to call him Teo) is a very athletic guy -- I assume you're talking about him -- and he absolutely reminds me of another prospect expected to go higher -- Koa Misi.
Teo is incredibly athletic for his size and I love his potential as a developmental player. Pretty productive, and the guy knows how to strip the ball evidence by 5 forced fumbles. And disruptive? Yes. In a good way, on the field. Watching him this year, the positives I saw were that he fired off the snap well and did well to often get pressure on the QB. He's a hustle guy too, and as mentioned he's got a nice combination of size and speed.
Some issues to note: Daniel is sometimes inconsistent as a tackler, and he lacks discipline -- he doesn't always play smart. He took a very stupid late hit out of bounds penalty against Notre Dame this year and it was unacceptable. Just stupid, stupid, stupid. Good thing though, if he comes here -- Sing can teach him that.
I love Teo as a developmental WILL prospect. The guy had 10 sacks last year, so he's got talent. 5th round range would be just about right, but he may not last that long because of his combine. A team intrigued with his athleticism could select Daniel as high as the 4th. I wouldn't be too surprised if that happened to be us.
