3.) Carl Davis, SR Iowa
Attributes – 6’5, 315, 5.24
Scouting report – Powerful run-stuffer with enough athleticism to eventually develop some pass rush ability. Davis moves very well for his size and was strong enough to break some weight-room records at Iowa. He uses that strength to hold up well against double-teams and should be a solid 1-tech at the next level. Despite his unusual athleticism, Davis wasn’t very productive as a pass rusher. He can get to the QB if a lane is there, but hasn’t shown the moves to make things happen on his own. The talent is there though for Davis to develop pass-rush skills and worst-case he should be an above average run stopper inside.
NFL comparison – Michael Brockers
Projection – 2nd / 3rd
Attributes – 6’2, 309, 5.30
Scouting report – Very productive DT with 15.5 sacks over the last two seasons. Davison is solid against the run with the ability to shed blocks and find the ball carrier. He doesn’t have any physical traits that stand out, but he still found a way to be consistently productive. Good instinctive football player who should be at least a rotational DT at the next level, but could surprise and earn a starting job.
Projection – 3rd round
5.) Kaleb Eullis, SR Mississippi St
Attributes – 6’3, 295, 4.98
Scouting report – Was a big part of Miss St’s improved defense this year. Eullis has shown flashes of being a dominant force inside, but also disappeared at times and was dominated at others (Alabama). Occasionally Eullis was a force against the run and flashed pass-rush ability (3 sacks), but couldn’t put it all together on a regular basis. Eullis has the athleticism and strength to play at the next level, but inconsistency and a lack of production will drop him down to the later rounds. He could be a good project for the Bears, providing depth initially and eventually developing into a starter if Sutton or Ferguson don’t pan out.
Projection – 5th round
