Pac-10 Ht., Wt.: 6'2, 232 40 Time: 4.75 Grade: 3.28
BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a senior and proceeded to post 52/21/16.5 after totaling 31/10/6.5 as a junior and 19/15/9.5 the prior year. Lined up at defensive end in college.
POSITIVES: Athletic prospect that brings a great degree of explosion to the game. Quickly gets off the ball out of a three-point stance, rushes the edge with speed and immediately alters his angle of attack. Fast pursuing the ball carrier from behind and makes plays in all directions. Effective off the line of scrimmage, displays outstanding range and plays with balance.
NEGATIVES: Undersized and must run around blocks. Only average ball skills in space.
ANALYSIS: After a terrific senior campaign, Acholonu is now a legitimate pro prospect. Stands out on tape but needs repetition and experience making plays in reverse. Solid long-term developmental prospect.
