BIO: Junior college transfer awarded All-Conference honors his only two years with Kansas. Senior totals included 12/3/1 after 28/9/4 the previous year.
POSITIVES: Tall, thin defensive end with growth potential. Works hard, has long arms and uses them to get off blocks or knock away passes. Makes a good amount of plays in the opponent's backfield. Displays a short-area burst of speed.
NEGATIVES: Does not play with good pad level and gets tall off the snap. Lacks explosion and does not show skills in pursuit. Marginal instincts.
ANALYSIS: After a promising junior season, Ashley suffered a disappointing campaign last year. Must add bulk, improve his playing strength and significantly step up his production to have any chance of making a practice squad.
