BIO: Four-year starter coming off a sensational senior campaign when he posted 55/17/1.5. Junior totals were 57/7/2 after 68/22/0 as a sophomore. Started 10 games as a freshman posting 66/19/7. Suspended from the team for a short time after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge.
POSITIVES: Explosive defensive lineman who's stock has been soaring since September. Flashes great quickness off the snap, keeps his pads low and plays with leverage. Gets momentum going up the field yet has terrific range for a defensive lineman. Displays an array of moves and gets off blocks with solid hand technique. Fights hard, makes a lot of plays in the opponents backfield or down the line of scrimmage. Had a terrific week at the Senior Bowl where he was almost unstoppable.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the great bulk on the inside and engulfed by large blockers. Off the field concerns include previous arrests and run-ins with the coaching staff.
ANALYSIS: A tremendously gifted defender with great upside for the next level, Dockett can be a one man show that impacts the game from the front four. May be finally turning the corner and beginning to mature both on and off the field.
