Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Powerful run defender who can occupy multiple blockers. While not overly quick, is active and plays with a purpose.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks great burst and won't collapse the pocket much as a pass rusher at the next level. Didn't face consistent top competition in college. Bit undersized at 6-feet.

Player Overview

The large interior lineman was a strong presence for Northern Illinois and has the traits to serve as a rotational run defender in the NFL.

"I don't think there's a better defensive player in the league than No. 93 (Bishop). He's got incredible strength and explosion," said Akron head coach Terry Bowden. "Whether it's against Iowa or us, he has the ability to stick a hand in somebody's chest and just drive them back. Then he separates with great quickness."

Bishop arrived at Northern Illinois in 2012 as a transfer from Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls, Iowa. In 27 games for the Huskies at nose guard, he posted 125 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and a pair of interceptions.
