Mike Purcell

School: Wyoming
Position: DT
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after totals of 83 tackles/10 tackles for loss/2 sacks. Junior totals included 48/4/2 after 57/5/1 as a sophomore.
Positive: Fierce, active defensive tackle quickly rising up draft boards. Plays with excellent pad level, fires off the snap with a terrific first step, and slices through the small creases of the offensive line. Works his hands to protect himself, tough to move off the point, and holds his ground. Stays with the action, consistently finds a way to get behind the line of scrimmage, and a disruptive force. Fluid changing direction, moves well to every area of the field, and shows a good head for the ball. Fluid sliding down the line of scrimmage in pursuit of the action.
Negative: Lacks great bulk, engulfed by larger blockers, or struggles shedding blocks once engaged at the point of attack. Possesses average pursuit speed.
Analysis: Purcell showed steady development the past three seasons and is coming off a career senior campaign. He's a 3-technique tackle who should do well in a four-man front and see consistent playing action at the next level.
