BIO: Two-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after career-best totals of 44/10.5/3. Junior numbers included 33/8.5/3, when he also led the nation with five blocked kicks.
POSITIVES: Former linebacker developing into a complete defensive lineman. Displays tremendous first-step quickness and looks like he was shot out of a cannon. Gets leverage on opponents, drives his feet up the field and plays hard.
NEGATIVES: Under-sized for the inside, possesses marginal playing strength and easily ridden from his angle of attack. Faced trial in mid-March on sexual assualt charges steeming back to last December.
ANALYSIS: A prospect who has elevated his game on the field, Paxson offers solid upside for the next level as either a rotational defensive tackle or two-gap lineman.
