Pressley arrived at N.C. State as one of the top prep prospects in the nation. He is a capable run stopper but hasn't demonstrated the consistent quickness, burst or instincts as a pass rusher to get scouts excited.



Big, thick-bodied athlete. ... Good quickness and great strength at the point of attack. ... Occupies blockers and is tough to move off the line. ... Holds up well against double teams. ... Good speed and willing to pursue to the flanks. Negatives: Lacks great burst off the snap. ... Occupies blockers without losing ground, but struggles to disengage or make plays in the backfield. ... Tends to lose the ball and can allow plays past him. ... Inconsistent and tends to disappear for stretches.
