It's hard to believe I've been watching Trent Cole play football for thirteen years. That's right,…
Prospect Profile: Trent Cole
Ht: 6-2.5 Wt: 236 40: 4.77 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three year starter and All-Conference selection who posted 68/22/8.5 as a senior. Junior totals included 88/14/5.
Positives: Undersized collegiate defensive end who projects to linebacker in the NFL. Plays with leverage keeping his pads low to the ground, displays explosion and moves well laterally. Rarely off his feet, fluid changing direction and has the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack. Pursues from the backside or comes off the edge with speed.
Negatives: Slow getting off blocks and easily wired at the point. Shows some hesitation in his game and not overly instinctive.
Analysis: A defender best making plays up the field, Cole must now learn to play in space. Used at outside linebacker during the Senior Bowl and struggled. May be best standing over tackle in a 34 defense.
