Will Sutton from Arizona State anybody? Wow i can't believe nobody is talking about this guy or taking this guy serious. I know he lacks the size of NFL DEs but this guy is a BEAST! At 6'2" (270 lbs) he plays a lot bigger than that. He doesn't have the fancy stats because he demands double teams and free up LBs to make plays, penetrates through the line scrimmage and rushes the passer really good. I think hes a sleeper that we can get on the 2nd or 3rd round. Im not saying that he'll come in and start rite away but hes got talent and I think he'll be an upgrade over our current backups IMHO. Watched his highlights on youtube and Im very impressed with his skills and motor. Also he played against tough opponents in the Pac 12 and dominates....
Me and SDN have but he is a tweener, he's almost more suited as an OLB because he is supposedly just shy of 270 and 6'2" but he sure looks bigger then his listed weight and I think he is in the 270s. As an OLB the best NFL comparison is Melvin Ingram, another tweener with a ton of athleticism but a body that didn't fit a DE, DT or OLB position and SD has made it work him as a jack of all trades player
My opinion is he'll end up being a 43 DE and very damn good one but I just dont see him playing 34 DT because I dont want a guy who if his listed weight of 270 is right looks fat. Packing on the 15+ pounds to be equal in weight to to most 34 DTs would need to be muscle if he has any hope of being an every down player.
I'd love for us to take him and groom him behind Justin but I am worried about his physical conditioning.
Besides that, he hasn't declared yet anyway.
