Defensive Line Prospects

DE/OLB Kony Ealy: One of the very first profiles done has seen his ups and downs. An inconsistent player in school possess the ability to be an amazing pro. http://sportdfw.com/2014/01/04/scouting-report-kony-ealy/

Aug 29, 2013; Minneapolis, MN, USA; Minnesota Golden Gophers defensive lineman Ra

DE/DT Ra’Shede Hageman: Hageman is another one of the uber-athletic  D-Linemen available this year. He comes with baggage and positional versatility. http://sportdfw.com/2014/01/04/scouting-report-kony-ealy/

NT/DT Louis Nix III: The big man in the middle for the Irish is ideal to play a 1-technique tackle. At over 320lbs he is big enough to take on multiple blockers and surprisingly nimble enough to still make splash plays in the backfield. Imagine how good Sean Lee could be if he had a mammoth tackle in front of him.

DT Will Sutton: Sutton doesn’t possess the same potential as the aforementioned three, but he is polished and boasts a higher floor, which equals less risk. http://sportdfw.com/2013/12/31/scouting-report-will-sutton/

DT Daniel McCullers: All potential. He’s as polished as …well…something that’s really unpolished. This beast of a man is 6’8” and over 350 lbs. He’s used to beating people up with his size rather than using skill. http://sportdfw.com/2014/01/01/scouting-report-daniel-mccullers/

DE/OLB Scott Crichton: Smart and Fast and generally likable kid. http://sportdfw.com/2014/01/01/scouting-report-daniel-mccullers/
