Big 12 Ht., Wt.: 6'4½, 265 40 Time: 4.97 Grade: 3.38
BIO: Posted 68/16/8 and broke up six passes as a senior after junior totals of 53/18/11 with four passes defended.
POSITIVES: Explosive pass rusher that makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Quickly gets off the snap, plays with good lean and has a closing burst of speed. Rarely off his feet and rushes the edge with speed. Fluid changing direction and pursues from the backside, displaying the ability to chase down ball carriers. Instinctive, quick to locate and deceptively strong.
NEGATIVES: Did not seem to play with a sense of urgency as a senior. Handled at the point or controlled by tight ends. Not effective in space.
ANALYSIS: After a breakout junior campaign Shull looked like a top prospect and while he flashed ability on film last season, his play was rather ordinary. Capped it off with a very poor performance at the Combine and as a result will tumble down draft boards.
