Taylor Hart

School: Oregon
Position: DE
Positive: Three-year starter who finished with a career-best 75 tackles last season while adding 6.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. Junior totals included 36 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks. Underrated defensive line prospect with a multi-scheme game. Fires off the snap, tough to move off the point and effectively fights with his hands to protect himself. Bends his knees, consistently plays with leverage, and displays a good change of direction. Flattens down the line of scrimmage in pursuit, shows a good head for the action, and quickly locates the ball. Plays bigger than his size and faster than his 40 time.
Negative: Not quick if asked to twist or stunt. Possesses a tall, thin build and struggles getting off blocks.
Analysis: Hart is a smart, tough defensive lineman who could be used at tackle in a four man front or as a two gap end. He's not a dynamic playmaker, but rather a stay-at-home defender who consistently positions himself to make plays on the ball. Expect Hart to be underdrafted in May, then go on to produce as a rookie in the NFL.
