Nathan Pepper

School: South Carolina
Position: DT
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and posted 27/3.5/2 last season after 23/5/1 as a junior.
Positive: Undersized yet explosive one-gap tackle who could be used as a three-technique lineman. Plays with good lean, displays solid first-step quickness and explodes off the snap. Keeps his feet driving up the field, works his hands to protect himself, and wedges through blockers on the inside. Keeps his pads low to the ground, gets leverage on opponents.
Negative: Lacks bulk on the inside, handled by a single blocker, or easily knocked from his angle of attack. Does not display power in his lower body or the ability to get push up the field. Marginally productive at South Carolina.
Analysis: Pepper is a marginal prospect but his quickness off the snap, skills changing direction and ability to play with good pad level could help him catch on as an inexpensive backup in a one-gap system.
