Pick Analysis: Tanoh Kpassagnon (Tawn-oh pass-N-yo) is an intelligent young man and a fantastic athlete. The son of a chemical scientist and economist was an accounting/finance double major who already had an internship with accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. His career got off to a slow start, redshirting in 2012, playing as a reserve in 2013 (15 tackles, one sack) and then missing eight games with a torn right MCL in his sophomore campaign (12 tackles, five for loss, 3.5 sacks in six games). Kpassagnon got healthy in 2015, turning in a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association season with 9.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. The Pennsylvania native took his game up a notch last fall, garnering first-team Associated Press FCS All-American honors, ranking sixth in the FCS with 21.5 tackles for loss and tying for fifth nationally with 11 sacks.
