Derrick Hopkins

School: Virginia Tech
Position: DT
Positive: Three-year starter awarded all-America honors as a senior after 54 tackles, 9 tackles for loss, and 5 sacks. Explosive one-gap tackle with possibilities as a backup 3-technique lineman. Fires off the snap, keeps his hands active throughout the play, and displays good movement skills. Shows a variety of techniques getting off blocks, plays with good pad level, and closes to the action with a quick burst. Easily changes direction and gets outside the box in pursuit of the action.
Negative: Lacks height, overwhelmed by opponents, and easily ridden from his angle of attack. Shows limited playing strength. Does not consistently play with a killer mentality.
Analysis: Hopkins was a solid defensive lineman at Virginia Tech and offers the size, change of direction skill and quickness to line-up as a 3-technique tackle at the next level.
