Prospect Profile: Jimmy Verdon
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 280 40: 5.06 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who's won varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Senior totals included 40/8.5/2 when he played defensive tackle, after 44/6/3 as a junior.
Positives: Quick, explosive defensive lineman who could develop into a left end in the NFL. Gets off the snap with a great first step, bends his knees and plays with leverage. Displays good hand technique protecting himself, wedges inside of blocks and quickly gets to the action. Moves well laterally, displaying speed in pursuit. Used at defensive end during the Senior Bowl and displayed great speed off the edge.
Negatives: Undersized and driven off the line by opponents. Marginal run defender.
Analysis: An alert lineman and instinctive football player, Verdon offers decent upside for the next level. His combination of athleticism, explosion, and smarts could help him see action as a rookie in the NFL.
