 Chris Solomona Grade: 2.81
 Position: DE
 Class: Sr
 School: Oregon
 Conference: Pac-10
 Ht., Wt.: 6-4.5, 290

BIO: Junior college transfer who moved into the starting lineup last season, posting 46/10/5 while also intercepting two passes.

POSITIVES: Well-sized defensive lineman with a good degree of athleticism. Gets leverage on opponents, immediately alters his angle of attack and pursue the action from the backside. Possesses a burst of closing speed and the ability to drop off the line of scrimmage and play in space. Solid footwork moving about the field and plays heads-up football.

NEGATIVES: Not strong at the point and handled by a single blocker. Lacks explosion off the snap or quickness in any aspect.

ANALYSIS: After finally getting a chance to play last fall, Solomona flashed skill throughout the season. Offers adequate size as well as growth potential, yet to this point nothing more than a practice squad player and developmental prospect.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
