Biography: Former reserve who became a full-time starter last season and posted 25/to/1. Started four games as a junior and posted 26/4/1.
Positives: Well-sized defensive tackle who flashes power and ability. Plays with good pad level, fires off the snap and displays good first step quickness. Works hard to get off blocks, keeps his feet moving, and shows the ability to push blockers off the line.
Negatives: Lacks balance, easily knocked from playing form with a single hit or handled by a single lineman. Not light on his feet or effective pursuing the action to the flanks.
Analysis: Ivey is a size prospect who?s yet to put it together on the field. He's a space eater in the middle of the line, yet he must step up all facets of his game to make it out of camp this summer.
