CBSSports.com’s Rob Rang’s draft projection: First round (No. 12 overall to Seattle)
Rob Rang’s analysis: The combine is really about the medical testing on players. The turf toe injury, the previous knee and ankle injuries, those will all be checked out. I expect he’ll get a perfectly acceptable grade. People want to know what’s inside his chest. People want to know if he can play like the man on fire like he played this year or if he’ll resort back to the guy who was good but not great, like he was earlier in his career. With Still, I don’t see the same explosiveness or fire (as Ndamukong Suh) but I think that he certainly would warrant top 10 consideration in any draft you’d ever have. Operating in his favor, he has good size, height and arm length. He has the length to play in a 3-4 scheme. His versatility is going to make him a highly sought after prospect. I personally see him as a 4-3 defensive tackle.
