Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Blessed with good size, a quick first step off the snap and plenty of experience (18 career starts). Whitaker looks the part of an NFL defensive lineman. He possesses a stout frame and shows both lateral agility and balance to avoid blockers to put himself in position to make plays.

WEAKNESSES: Whitaker appears hesitant to commit when he has ball-carriers in his sights, however, and isn't a particularly physical player, overall. At this time Whitaker simply doesn't make enough plays to warrant a draft selection, though he certainly could change that with the breakout campaign Auburn fans have been expecting since he arrived on campus.

Player Overview

Perhaps only quarterback and defensive end rank ahead of defensive tackles as a position in which a player can enjoy a breakout campaign and zoom into strong NFL draft consideration. The Auburn Tigers are hopeful that just such a breakout could be coming from true junior defensive tackle Jeffrey Whitaker, who flashed last season in starting all 13 games.

While his statline is less than eye-popping (25 tackles, two tackles for loss, 3 QB hurries, one forced and one recovery fumble), it was Whitaker who typically absorbed the double-team blocks that helped allow Lemonier to rank among SEC leaders with 9.5 sacks.
