Anton Palepoi

SELECTED BY NEW ORLEANS , ROUND 2, PICK 28, OVERALL PICK 60
DE | (6-2, 275, 4.82) | UNLV
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Dixie Junior College transfer who stepped right in and started all but two games in 2000. Missed about half the '01 season with a knee injury. Suffered a partial tear of the posterior cruciate ligament and missed two games but then was re-injured and missed the rest of the year. Only played in six games and defensive stats were way off from 2000. Had 37 tackles, including 11 for loss and eight sacks in 2000, when he earned All-Mountain West Conference honors and 18-7-4 in '01.

Positives: Good athlete. Quick with enough speed to come off the edge. Shows some pass-rush ability. Can run and chase. Has an upside.

Negatives: Undersized and will struggle to play the run. Gets engulfed by bigger tackles at times. Had an injury-plagued senior year.

Summary: Should be drafted if he is healthy and works out well.
