Draft Scouting Report

Rating: 81.06 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Johnathan Hankins

Strengths:

Colossal human being at the nose tackle spot. Played the 1T and more 3T than you'd expect for a human being his size. Mostly a power player -- bull rush -- and more finesse than expected. Powerful but not overwhelmingly so on a regular basis because rushes are high. Immovable against doubles. Club move is fantastic as a pass rusher, and he'll use it as an awesome counter. Mostly a two-down player but has some pass-rush upside because of his hand work and natural power.

Weaknesses:

First-step quickness is good, not great. Not a tremendous run defender because he's not twitchy nor a consistent block defeater.

Accolades:

  • Named top DT on National Team at Senior Bowl
  • Played in 33 games over three seasons
Next Game
TBA
  • Merlin Olsen Field at Maverik Stadium

  • Ravens' Travis Jones: Baltimore-bound in third round

    The Ravens selected Jones in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 76th overall.

    Jones' skills could use some sharpening, but he might not have been in a good spot to develop while playing at Connecticut, where he started since his true freshman season. Beyond that, Jones is about as toolsy as a defensive tackle gets, boasting rare athleticism (4.92-second 40, 7.33-second three-cone drill) on a huge frame (6-foot-4, 325 pounds). Few teams develop raw defensive players as well as the Ravens, and Jones has ample athleticism to work with.
