Projection

First Round

Comparison

Danielle Hunter Minnesota Vikings

A larger-framed pass rusher that’s best football still appears to be well ahead of him, which is bad news for future opponents. The first one off the bus with his hulking, muscular frame that looks to be pushing 6-foot-6, 245 pounds. Has a bit of a natural up-right demeanor to him, but isn’t exactly stiff, and has shown time and time again on Friday nights that he can bend and find some leverage. Does a variety of different things well at this stage in his development, but the most promising trait might be his motor and ability to make stops/plays in backside pursuit. Has experience working out of both a two and three-point stance in a 4-3 base defense. Superb snap anticipation allows him to quickly shoot into the backfield and get to work. Tends to make the most of the opportunities presented to him as a well-timed spin move has turned into a bit of a money maker, but that’s not the only trick he uses to get after the quarterback as he also can beat offensive tackles with a long-arm and bull rush. Not one to disappear against the run, but could always get a little more gap sound and will need to learn how to hold his ground against college veterans. Lack of verified data makes it hard to paint the whole picture, but should be viewed as one of the top defensive ends in the class of 2023 given length, fluid movement skills and production (racked up 16.5 sacks and 22 QBH as a junior). Must keep progressing and keep the right mindset, but has what it takes to eventually emerge as an impact player for a College Football Playoff contender and a possible Day 1 selection in the NFL Draft. Shouldn't be pigeonholed to one exact role as he could be molded into a variety of different things given growth potential.
