Default Re: The latest Drafttek Mock (3/11/12)

SlidersDevon Still, Penn State: Still struggled throughout his entire workout. His 5.05-second 40 time paled when compared to many of the top defensive tackles at the combine. Still looked stiff in drills and struggled with his balance throughout the session.

“He had the injuries, no question were legitimate injuries. He had a torn ACL and a broken ankle. These are significant injuries. “But this year I thought he was really good. He was a major force against the run. He did a real steady job for them. He’s a big kid. He’s got rare physical ability.” Kiper said Still hasn’t “wowed anybody” throughout the pre-draft process

Still's best position might be as a "five technique" end in a 3-4 front, with the ability to move inside in some 4-3 looks or situational occasions. At 303 pounds, he probably isn't a candidate for 3-4 nose tackle, although a few clubs that don't use a traditional "space-eater" type player still have him as a possibility there. The good news for Still is that he seems to have answered any lingering physical questions about past injuries, including an ACL in 2007 and broken ankle in '08. But there remains the question of where Still, solid against the run and still quicker than most guards, will line up in the NFL. - Len Pasquarelli
