School: Syracuse Position: Defensive Tackle Class: Senior Height: 6-4 Weight: 309 Projected Draft Round: 3-5
Scouting Report:


Has grown into a nose tackle (4-3) over his time at Syracuse, where he has been extremely productive on a vastly improving team. More than just a two gapping tackle that eats up two blockers, he has a powerful, quick burst off of the snap. Has a number of pass rush moves as he has played on the outside as well, and this ability to pass rush will enhance his draft stock.

STRENGTHS


—A rare four-year starter, Chris Slayton offers experience and excellent size (6'4", 307 lbs) at the position; he can play in gaps or line up as a 3-4 defensive end.


—Shows good first-step quickness and can jolt blockers with his long arms (33½").


—Overall, is an athletic lineman with good hip flexibility and light feet. Can be a problem to handle with his size and natural movement skills.


—Understands leverage and plays with a consistent pad level and knee bend.


                                  


WEAKNESSES


—His production on tape and on the box score isn't there. He rarely impacts the play and is unlikely to suddenly develop as a pass-rusher in the pros.
