Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Randall was once touted as an early-round prospect, but a disappointing final season leveled his draft stock. However, he possesses the size and strength to emerge as a quality interior defender as a pro.

  • 6'4" Height
  • 33 3/4" Arm Length
  • 293LBS. Weight
  • 9 5/8" Hands


Randall is a strong force up front, in the mold of many former Longhorns who aren't completely athletic but effective with bull rushing and manhandling linemen. Randall plays in spots for Texas and is hardly ever on the field in passing situations. He played the nose position in many 3-4 type alignments but is undersized for the pros. He has sixth-round value.



Randall is an instinctual player who always seems to pick and choose his spots correctly when slanting and stunting. He seems to be crafty and able to avoid double teams to be a major factor against the run. He can hold up blocks well at the point, then shed quickly. Randall uses his hands well here and also as a pass rusher.


Randall is a non-factor on passing downs. Not only is he usually pulled out of the game for obvious passing situations, but he is ineffective when he does get his chance.
Grade Title Draft (Round) Description
96-100 Future Hall of Famer Top Pick A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
85-95 Immediate Starter 1st 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).
70-84 Eventual Starter 2nd-3rd 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.
50-69 Draftable Player 4th-7th 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.
20-49 Free Agent UDFA 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.
