Overview

Acho is a good football player who shines off the field, as he was awarded the 2010 William V. Campbell Trophy for excellence in the classroom and the community. On the field, he is a strong relentless pass rusher who uses his hands to keep blockers at bay. However, he is a bit of tweener at this point, as he does not have the bulk to be stout against the run and lacks the athleticism to play linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Acho will win the interview and could be picked on Day 2 by a team impressed with his intelligence and character.

Analysis

Strengths

Acho is tall enough with a muscular build. Has a strong upper body and plays with good leverage. Flashes the ability to knock tackles on their heels with a powerful bull rush. Solid tackler that consistently wraps the ball carrier. Fierce competitor with impeccable character.

Weaknesses

Does not explode off the line and struggles to get around the edge. A bit stiff in the hips and is a liability on his feet in the open field. Range is limited and he will not make plays on the backside. Can be engulfed by bigger offensive tackles. Late recognizing counter plays and draws at times.
