Pick Analysis: Dylan is the son of Mitch Donahue, who was the WAC Defensive Player of the Year in 1989 and 1990 for Wyoming and went on to play four years in the NFL. Donahue wears the same number 49 jersey as his dad. He ended up going the junior college route coming out of high school in Billings, Montana (where his dad owns a roofing company). He racked up 19 sacks in two years at Palomar College before heading to UWG for the 2015 season.

He was the Gulf South Defensive Player of the Year in 2016, along with multiple All-American honors, after setting the conference record with 13.5 sacks (67 tackles, 20 for loss).
