BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors last year. Senior totals were 45/11.5/9.5 after a junior campaign of 53/13/5.
POSITIVES: Undersized collegiate pass rusher with poor size/speed numbers. Quick off the edge, immediately alters his angle of attack and pursues down the line with speed. Wedges inside of blockers, works his hands throughout the play and rarely is off his feet.
NEGATIVES: Does not possess the strength or size to be an every-down defensive end. Rarely makes plays in reverse.
ANALYSIS: Productive on the college level, DeGrate is a situational pass rusher in the NFL who must produce on special teams.
