Default The Prospects: Dontari Poe



DL41
Dontari Poe
DT - Memphis

Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 330 lbs.


Grade: 89.0

Overview

Poe is a big man who will likely improve a 3-4 defense working as their anchor inside at NT. His best attribute is his ability to occupy space inside and allow those on the second level to flow and make plays. He isn’t just a big man to hold two blockers, however, as he can use his strength to overpower most blockers at the collegiate level and also use his athletic ability to be a threat in the passing game and make plays around the ball. Poe has the build and athleticism to be picked late in the first round or near the top of the second.
Analysis

Strengths

Poe has a serious ability to eat up a double team. Strong lower body so that he can stabilize his position. His athletic ability and quickness force the use of a double team, and he can wreak havoc around the ball. Poe uses his strong hands to keep defenders at bay and throw them around to create opportunities. He is a consistent defender who combines size, strength, athletic ability, and the understanding of what it takes inside for himself and those around him to do their job. Weaknesses

Poe can't do much else besides be an effective lane-clogger within the right scheme. He doesn't have the versatility to move outside to end in a 3-4, a trend that has been seen from many teams who like to get girth and athleticism on the edge of their line. He is not very quick off the ball, and although he is a good athlete for his size, he could struggle to create "splash" plays for himself early on at the next level, where he will likely be facing double teams and much stronger interior offensive lineman.

26. Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis* -- Poe is a massive defender who easily moves his body around the field, making plays behind the line of scrimmage or out to the flanks. He offers a tremendous amount of upside potential and has the ability to play in a variety of defensive systems.

He just ran an official 4.94 in the 40, and previously ran a 4.87 on his unofficial attempt. He's built, a truly amazing specimen.

if we can't get glenn in rd. 1 I'm sure our picks will be either hightower or poe. i'm thinking linebacker is a more pressing need though. but if we do end up picking poe i won't complain, our D-line will be set for the next 6+ years.

There are way more OG's in this draft than NT's.

Osemele, Zeitler, Silatou, Blake, Schwartz, etc......I dont think we need to jump at Cordy Glenn and pass on a guy like this or an ILB like Hightower.

Poe might not even be an option now due to his great combine.

he won't. likely gone before the 20th pick. that level of athleticism he has will make someone jump at him even if he isn't the most polished prospect yet. potential to eventually be a disruptive player on ngata's level is there.
