Dontari Poe 2012 NFL Draft

Dontari Poe, DL, Memphis

Height: 6’5″
Weight: 350
Grade: 7.0CU (Grading Scale)

Film Room Notes: vs Memphis

Strengths: Unreal combination of size, bulk, length and strength – Good strength through his lower body – Ideal 4-3 DT, with the size to be a 3-4 nose – Good first step, especially early in games – Has a better motor than you’d expect out of a 350 pound prospect – Shows quality change of direction ability for his size – Penetrates easily when singled – Very good tackler, if he gets a piece of the ball-carrier, he is going down – Diagnoses plays quickly – Incredibly high ceiling – Team captain.

Weaknesses: Not an ideal nose tackle despite his size, plays on skates at times – Doesn’t disengage well against double teams – Gets a bit high at times with his pad level – Not a dynamic pass-rusher at this point, needs to add to his rip move – Draft stock based a lot on potential at this point.
