|Draft Prediction:||Fifth Round|
2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
William Gholston, DE, Michigan State
Gholston is a power-rusher with raw, underdeveloped talent. Lateral agility is lacking, but moves quickly downhill. Long frame can eat up ground quickly. Can collapse the pocket and gets up well to swat at passing lanes. Relies on wearing down his blocker and brings good intensity throughout the game.
Strong tackler and can bring down ball-carriers hard. Well-balanced game, but unlikely to ever be a dominant pass-rusher in the NFL. Could transition to a 3-4 end later in his career given his huge length. Potential in short zone coverages, but currently very stiff in his lower half and footwork.
Cousins with former New York Jets OLB Vernon Gholston. Plays hot with high energy. Maintains good gap integrity and stays on assignment reliably. Defensive leader with the Spartans and led one of the Big Ten's best defenses the last two seasons.
Gholston projects as a fifth round prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft.
