Player Overview

Scouts will be interested to see if Vanderbilt's switch to the 3-4 pays off with more big plays for Woestmann, who has emerged the past two years as the Commodores' most reliable pass rusher.

Woestmann became a starter for the first time at defensive end in 2013, recording career highs in tackles (40) and sacks (six). He was a valuable part of the rotation at defensive end a year earlier, registering 22 tackles, including 8.5 tackles for loss and five sacks.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Possesses active hands and good leg drive to bull rush his way into the backfield. Terrific motor, frequently chasing down ball-carriers in pursuit and gets his hands up into passing lanes. Woestmann possesses good upper body strength and is a solid, wrap-up tackler who has forced four fumbles over his career.

WEAKNESSES: Woestmann shows just average explosiveness off the ball out of the three-point stance. He's a bit stiff in his midsection, showing less-than-ideal fluidity when changing directions in pursuit.

The scheme change under coach Derek Mason could result in improved numbers for Woestmann, as well as convince scouts that he possesses the versatility to attack off the edge at the next level. With every team in the league looking for passionate edge rushers to play hybrid roles, Woestmann is one to watch.
