Biography: "Full-time starter as a senior finishing the year with 57/12/2, one interception and breaking up a single pass. Primarily a reserve during his junior campaign and finished the year with 17/4.5/2. Initially moved in the starting lineup as a sophomore and totaled 27/4/1."
Positives: "Hardworking, undersized college defensive end who flashes skill as a pass rusher. Effectively uses his hands and can bend off the edge or make plays laterally. Changes directions well, plays with good quickness, and stays with the action."
Negatives: Easily controlled by a single blocker. Does not consistently play with good pad level. Possesses just averaging closing speed and lacks pursuit speed.
Analysis: Trattou plays with a high motor but lacks the pure physical skills to be anything other than a backup on the NFL level. He could fit in as a 3-4 outside linebacker brought onto the field as a pass rusher.
