    Round 1, Pick #13: Rams Select - DT Aaron Donald




    St. Louis Rams: Round 1, Pick #13

    Aaron Donald, DT



    Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 285 lbs
    Arm Length: 32 5/8"
    Hand Size: 9 7/8"
    College: Pittsburgh


    STRENGTHS:
    Quick off the snap. Plays with natural leverage. Gets under pads and into gaps and is highly disruptive penetrating. Explosive in short area -- recorded a 1.64-second 10-yard split at the combine. Good foot athlete -- redirects well and can work the edges and loop and stunt. Flexible enough to zone-drop in short area. Plays with awareness and consistently locates the ball. Closes hard and fast. Keeps working to the ball. Disruptive penetrating ability. Outstanding career production. Tough and competitive with terrific personal and football character. Ran the fastest 40-yard dash by a defensive tackle and the combine and bench-pressed 225 pounds 35 times. Was unblockable in Senior Bowl 1-on-1 drills.

    WEAKNESSES:
    Marginal height and frame is nearly maxed out. Hands are more active than strong -- could play with more pop and power. Overpowered in the run game and ground up by double teams. Gets snared and controlled by bigger, longer blockers. Not a two-gap player. Has some tweener traits -- lacks ideal length and bend to play outside.

    BOTTOM LINE:
    Short, scrappy, instinctive, highly productive defensive penetrator who does not look the part, but inspires confidence he can be an exception to the rule. Is the type you root for and has the first-step quickness, athleticism and motor to emerge as a havoc-wreaking three-technique in a fast-flowing 4-3 scheme such as the one deployed in Dallas, Chicago and Tampa Bay. Compares very favorably to (Tampa Bay 1999 15th overall pick) Booger McFarland and is a key building block and classic scheme fit for Tampa 2 teams.

    Yeah Brockers is supposed to be the Run stuffer guy. Although I'm pretty sure Brockers will break out this season. Dude has star written all over him.

    Brockers will have a big year he was coming on late this year we could realistically have double digit sacks from all four of our starters

    I would have preferred Ha Ha/Pryor, but I'm not complaining.

    Donald will get elevate Brockers game. He will also make Quinn insanely unblockable. I have mad props for Quinn. Watching him sack RW like it was nothing. I think Donald and Quinn will become a legendary rush combo. Bennett helped our pass rush out more than anyone. I think Donald will be your version of Bennett.

    Maybe Donald's 29 TFL from his last season in college can alleviate those concerns? Guy is a pass rusher and a run stuffer all in one. He knows how to get into the backfield with ease. Only reason he wasn't a top 5 pick is his size.

    Also, Brockers is a great run stuffer and pocket pusher. He's also developing into a good pass rusher too, with 5.5 sacks in 2013.

    This DL is ridiculous.
