Grading System
KEVIN EMANUEL
Position: DE
Class:
School: Florida St.
Conference: ACC
Ht., Wt.: 6'3½, 251
40 Time: 4.89
Grade: 3.43

BIO: Played extensively with the starting unit the past four seasons finishing with 34/10/3 as a senior after 40/15/4 the prior season.

POSITIVES: Athletic edge rusher who makes a lot of plays in opponents' backfield. Fast off the corner yet at the same time displays an explosive move on the inside and the ability to wedge through blockers. Quick changing direction, relentless in his pursuit of the play and displays speed in a straight line or laterally. Some skill dropping off the line and playing in space.

NEGATIVES: Takes wide angles and runs around blocks and neutralized at the point in run defense. Coming off a sub-par senior campaign.

ANALYSIS: Known as a high-character prospect who leads by example on the practice field, Emanuel offers a decent upside for the next level but must mature physically and rebound off a poor senior campaign. Showed signs of life at the Gridiron Classic and may have salvaged a mid-round selection for himself.

PROJECTION: Late Fifth Round
