Put him on the line with Cam Heyward.
The drawback of doing that, IMO, is Donald is only 6'0". Off the top of my head I don't know of many defensive lineman who are that short, who are around 280 pounds. Guys like Dwight Freeny are around 6 feet tall, but they do not weigh near 280. Freeny is a speed-based pass rusher. I agree that Donald would have to lose significant fat to be like him. I think if Donald is going to lose fat, he'll be converted to a LB. But like I said above, it depends on what team he ends up with. I also would argue that NFL scouts may not think he is not big enough to be an NFL lineman. I could also see him adding weight to be around 300 pounds. Then I envision him as an end, but not a speed defense end.
