Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He is often the first to move off the snap with explosive quickness and natural bend to alter his momentum on the move and disrupt the blocker's rhythm. Day is a controlled athlete in space to break down and finish with a motor that never quits revving.

WEAKNESSES: Lengthy injury history, leaving durability in question. He lacks ideal size and point of attack strength, and the term "stout anchor" won't be found in his scouting report as he allows blockers to bully him in the run game. Day's shorter arms are a frequent culprit for his inability to consistently disengage blocks, allowing blockers to engulf and seal him from the pocket.

COMPARES TO: Aaron Donald, Rams -- He's not on the same level as Donald as a prospect, but Day fits the similar mold, projecting best as a three-technique in a four-man front.

IN OUR VIEW: As an interior disruptor, Day is one of the best in college football and arguably one of the top 10 senior prospects in the 2016 class (if he can stay healthy).

Player Overview

In his third season as a starter for the Irish, Day has battled various injuries over his career. But when healthy and on the field, he is an impact defender in the trenches.

01/10/2015 - Sheldon Day to return to Notre Dame for senior season...Here's some good news for Notre Dame, and a nice change of pace with the recent flood of underclassmen declaring for the NFL Draft. The Irish will have a key member of their defense back on the unit in 2015. The school announced on Saturday that defensive lineman Sheldon Day will return to school for his senior season. "I just felt it was in my best interest to play another year for Notre Dame," said Day. A run-stuffer up the middle, Day finished the 2014 season with 40 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, a sack and nine QB hurries. It's very good news for an Irish defense that had underclassmen make up nine of their 11 leading tacklers in 2014. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
