Pleasant has been a consistent and durable starter at Oregon. He can struggle in pass defense but is good in run support and has been a productive tackler. His high level of play and productivity make him a late-round option.
Pleasant is productive working near the line of scrimmage. He is a reliable tackler who can bring guys down as a last option in space. He has hip fluidity but struggles with his footwork at times. He is a solid hitter who brings good size to the back end of the defense. He has the tackling ability and temperament to contribute on special teams.
Pleasant can struggle at times covering the pass. He is better at reacting in zone coverage than he is covering man to man over a tight end.
Future Hall of Famer
A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
