Biography: Three-year starter who totaled 18/3/1 last season in five games, missing seven games after breaking his foot before the campaign began. Junior totals included 42 tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss.

Positives: Nice-sized college defensive end with growth potential. Bends his knees, plays with good leverage, and keeps his feet driving on contact. Relatively quick off the snap, works his hands to protect himself, and moves well on the field. Fluid getting out to the flanks and resilient defending the run. Displays above-average strength at the point of attack.

Negatives: Lacks great first-step quickness. Easily knocked from his angle of attack by a single blocker. Marginally productive as a pass rusher.

Analysis: Stone displayed a lot of potential as a junior and was considered a fringe late-round choice by scouts coming into the season. His broken foot last August was a major setback, and Stone will now have to prove his worth as an undrafted free agent.

Projection: FA
