BIO: Broke into the starting lineup as a freshman and awarded All-Conference honors the past three seasons. Senior totals included 41/11.5/5.5 after 50/11/3.5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working overachiever on the defensive line. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level and is rarely off his feet. Commands double-team blocks and plays hard until the whistle blows. Instinctive and immediately locates the ball.
NEGATIVES: Limited skills as a pass-rusher or making plays laterally. Slow shedding blocks.
ANALYSIS: Marginally athletic, Leaders makes the most of his tools and is a respected team leader. Comes with limited upside but could back-up at the next level.
