BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter used at both defensive end and linebacker. Senior-year totals included 58/16.5/13 after 38/8.5/5.5 the previous year.
POSITIVES: Disruptive college pass-rusher with marginal upside for the next level. Displays speed off the edge, pursues well from the back side, and makes plays in every direction. Fluid turning his hips to transition in coverage and flashes explosion on the field.
NEGATIVES: Easily taken from the action by blocks. Hesitates and does not show top instincts.
ANALYSIS: Hoke is at his best making plays up the field, yet he lacks the size and speed to line up in a three-point stance at the next level. He could make it as a pass-rushing specialist, yet he must show the ability to make plays in pass coverage this summer.
