BIO: Came off the bench the past two seasons totaling 20/10.5/6.5 as a senior after 24/7/3 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Athletic pass-rushing specialist with potential at outside linebacker. Breaks down well, easily alters his angle of attack and plays faster than his 40 time. Deceptively strong and defeats blocks. Keeps his feet moving on contact and works hard to make plays.
NEGATIVES: Must develop more moves and learn to protect himself. Engulfed at the point or easily cut-blocked.
ANALYSIS: Physically gifted, Nanton has marginal starting experience the past four years and is an unpolished prospect. Has a frame which could hold another 20 pounds of muscle and offers potential as an edge rush specialist.
