|DE Koa Misi, Utah
|Pos. Rank: 7
|Grade: 2nd Round
|Height: 6-2 1/2
The Good: Athletic defensive end best suited in a four-man front or as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment. Breaks down well, plays with good knee bend, and gets leverage on opponents. Works his hands to protect himself, displays terrific quickness in his all-around game, and also shows a good degree of awareness. Fast up the field, immediately alters his angle of attack, and shows ability in pursuit, catching the ball-carriers from the back side. Fast in every direction of the field, possesses a burst bearing down on plays, and has a physical nature to his game. Effective dropped off the line of scrimmage and playing in space.
The Bad: Cannot get off blocks once engaged at the point of attack. Lacks great first step quickness. Does not always show a nasty attitude on the field.
The Verdict: Misi is a solid prospect who's consistently improved his game over the past three seasons. He offers a good amount of upside potential and should eventually develop into starter at the next level.
