Vernon Butler   #92 DT

Height: 6-4   Weight: 330   Age: 25

Born: 6/14/1994 District 4, Pike Co. , MS

College: Louisiana Tech

Experience: 4th season

High School: North Pike HS [Summit, MS]









Draft 2016

Pick No.30

Selected By: Carolina Panthers

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 31 (30)

Pick Analysis: A big body in the middle of the Bulldogs' defense, Butler proved in his two years as a starter that he has the girth and nimble feet to clog up running lanes. Conference USA coaches rectified their error in not giving Butler all-conference recognition in 2014 (56 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss) by voting him first-team All-C-USA after his senior year (50 tackles, 10 TFL, three sacks, eight quarterback hurries). NFL teams will not miss the opportunity to add Butler to their interior.
