Pro Day Results

40-yard dash: 4.92 and 4.93 seconds



Looks for contact and is a willing participant. Will step into the hole and deliver a blow against iso-blocks. Fires himself into oncoming guards and rarely gets engulfed. Can drop into space as a zone defender. Heavy tackler in the box. Quick, choppy feet to scrape and attack along the line of scrimmage.


Lacks natural flexibility and plays upright. Lukewarm pursuit of the ball outside his assigned area. Struggles to get back into the play when he finds himself out of position. Has issues breaking down in space to tackle. Below-average change of direction. Missed tackles went way up this year when asked to play more snaps. Huge liability in man coverage. Struggles to maintain leverage against outside runs.

Bottom Line

Burly and thick through his middle, DePriest needs plays to unfold in front of him to play at his best. With offenses becoming matchup-oriented, DePriest's value to an NFL team could be diminished. Best-suited as a two-down ILB in a 3-4 defense.
