Draft Watch: Taylor Hart, Oregon
Hart is a tall, athletic defensive lineman with tremendous size and ability. He is an explosive player and consistently got pressure in the pocket against UCLA offensive linemen. Hart is a gritty, tough interior lineman who does the dirty work of taking on blocks to tie up offensive linemen. This allows his defensive mates to make plays. He is a versatile player that can line up on the outside or inside at the three technique. Hart is a perfect fit as a DE in a 3-4 defense and has the frame to gain weight as he can easily carry over 300-pounds. His toughness, versatility and quickness could also land him with a 4-3 team as well. Hart provides great value in the middle to late rounds because of his versatility to play multiple positions along the defensive front.
