Jonathan Babineaux - DT

 Jonathan Babineaux Grade: 3.83
 Position: DT
 Class: Sr
 School: Iowa
 Conference: Big Ten
 Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 286
 40 Time: 4.92
  Selected by: Atlanta Falcons
  Round 2, pick 27 (59 overall)

BIO: Former fullback who started the past three seasons. Posted 55/25/10.5 as a senior, winning All-Conference honors.

POSITIVES: Explosive tackle quick in all aspects of the game. Immediately gets off the snap with a great first step, plays with leverage as well as exceptional balance. Gets a good amount of momentum going up the field, displays a burst of speed and runs well. Good hand technique getting off blocks as well as a solid arm-over move. Wedges through opponents, quickly locates the ball and goes hard. Consistently around the action making positive plays. Outstanding in pursuit, chasing to get involved in the action and rarely off his feet.

NEGATIVES: Undersized, driven off the line of scrimmage by big blockers or engulfed at the point.

ANALYSIS: An athletic defensive line prospect who lacks the pure height for end and size on the interior, Babineaux possesses the skills to be used in a variety of systems. Best in a one-gap scheme, preferably lined up next to a wide body. Should also be productive as a three-technique lineman. A worthy top-45 pick in April.

PROJECTION: Mid Second Round
