Robert Nkemdiche

School: Mississippi
Position: DT
Positive: Three-year starter awarded All-America honors since his freshman season. Junior totals included 29 tackles and 7 tackles for loss. Explosive and versatile defensive line prospect who possesses great upside potential but also several red flags. Displays tremendous first step quickness, plays with outstanding balance and shows a lot of athleticism in his game. Fights with his hands to protect himself, plays with good pad level and displays a variety of moves getting off blocks. Fluid and smooth changing direction, pursues laterally with speed and rarely off his feet. Explosive, fights to get off blocks and flashes power. Effective open field tackler.
Negative: Does not show great bulk or real power. Out positioned from the play by larger offensive lineman. Marginal production. Serious concerns have been raised about off field issues as well as his work ethic.
Analysis: Nkemdiche displayed himself to be a difference maker on the college level and a defensive lineman opponents were forced to game plan around. He has size and scheme limitations but offers possibilities as a three technique tackle or two gap end if his priorities are in order.
