2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dominique Easley, DT, Florida

Easley is a bit undersized for the position and will need to find the correct niche when advancing to the NFL. He is packed tight at 6-foot-2 and 280 pounds and could afford to add more lower body strength and girth throughout.

Relentless style of play. Not particularly strong in his base; however, his active hands are always fighting for leverage. A bit sloppy in his technique/footwork when changing directions. Easily transitions between speed to a power rush. Makes the most of his height by staying low on the block and getting underneath taller blockers. Looks for the early advantage by blasting through his upper body into blocker's pads. Inconsistent ability to disengage if blockers get a hold of him.

Played multiple positions for the Gators. Projects as a five-technique DE in 3-4 defense. Strength against double teams will leave him exposed and can be pushed around a little too easily at times. Excellent effort to the whistle. Should be faster and quicker given his size. Serious red flags with injuries over his collegiate career. May be untouchable for some teams because of durability concerns.

Easley projects as a late second to early third round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
