Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two years. Senior totals included 35/5/2 after 52/12.5/2 as a junior.
Positives: Quick, explosive interior tackle with nice size. Plays with good knee bend, fires off the snap and explosive at the point. Quickly changes direction, always plays with good leverage, and focused on by opponents. Active with his hands, collapses laterally to make plays, and rarely off his feet. Flashes power and the ability to get push up the field.
Negatives: Possesses more of a short-area burst of speed and ineffective in pursuit. Struggles getting off blocks and handled at the point or out positioned by large blockers.
Analysis: Troup possesses the physical skills to line up on the inside of a conventional four-man line at the next level. He's shown a lot of skill over the past three seasons, and he is a solid developmental prospect.
