Devon Still, DT, Penn State

Still is a big-bodied, thick defensive tackle prospect for the Penn State Nittany Lions. Entering the 2012 NFL Draft, there is room for improvement in his draft stock since he is widely-viewed as a interior run stopper only. He tore his ACL as a true freshman, which will be a concern for some coaches during the interview process.

The great thing about this year's defensive tackle class is that there is still the prospect that someone can emerge and break into the Top 5 at the position. Still, for now, is the de facto top prospect but he can be overtaken. Teams are always looking to improve their defensive line, which will carry a player like Still's draft stock a bit higher than projections may indicate.

Still is a tough mauler on the inside who can move bodies between the tackles. He lacks the ability to chase down ball-carriers, but his extreme height and bulk make him a serious handful for offensive linemen.

At the next level, his pass rush needs work. Whether he is shooting the gaps or improving his first step, teams will need to polish his game if they want him to be able to play all three downs. He doesn't have wide hips, but since he is so lean, he can add weight. There is certainly room on his frame to develop a bigger and stronger base.
