BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 30/6/1.5 as a senior when he also intercepted two passes and broke up one more. Missed two games last season with a knee injury. Junior-year totals included 44/7/2.
POSITIVES: Athletic defensive lineman who struggled with injuries and inconsistency in college. Explodes off the snap with a terrific first step, fluid changing direction, and makes plays down the line. Penetrates the gaps up the field, plays with a good degree of suddenness, and has a closing burst. Flashes strength and the ability to hold the point.
NEGATIVES: Plays with inconsistent pad level, gets tall, and makes himself an easy target. Must improve his hand technique and learn to disengage from blocks quicker. Plays with a streaky nature and disappears for stretches.
ANALYSIS: Pressley is a physically gifted prospect who has been a slight underachiever on the college level. He has the size and athleticism to be a starter at the next level, yet he must play with a consistent motor and start to meet expectations.
