SELECTED BY PITTSBURGH , ROUND 5, PICK 13, OVERALL PICK 145
DT | (6-2, 285, 5.05) | Alabama
By Pro Football WeeklyNotes: High school All-American and the best DL prospect in the state of Tennessee. Started from Game Four on as a true freshman in 1998 and had 31 tackles, 11 for loss and one sack. Started every game in '99. Ended the season with 39-13-51 and was named second-team All-Southeastern Conference by the Associated Press. Redshirted in 2000 after tearing his right Achilles tendon. Came back to start all but one game (out vs. LSU with a sprained knee) in '01, when he had 41-5-5½ with one interception. Registered 54-5-9 in '02.Positives: Good athlete who can get much better. Power end who can hold the point when he keeps his pads down. Flashes quickness as a pass rusher and has a nice spin move.Negatives: Is too soft, does not like to work hard and takes the easy way out too often. Does not always seem to give 100 percent on the field or finish plays and is not a very good off-the-field worker. Appears to run out of gas and does not fight through fatigue well. Lacks toughness inside and is not as fast as teams would like outside.Summary: The most gifted of Alabama's three senior defensive linemen but the least productive. Can get a lot better if he works at it. * Player biographies are provided by Pro Football Weekly.
