Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-American and all-Conference honors as a senior with totals of 59/17/9. Junior totals included 63/14/10. Used at both defensive end and defensive tackle for Texas.
Positives: "Hardworking and relatively athletic defensive lineman who plays hard. Breaks down well, plays with good lean, and works his hands throughout the action. Fluid changing direction, keeps his feet driving on contact, and moves relatively well. Fires off the snap with a good first step, quickly penetrates the gaps, and makes plays behind the line of scrimmage. Smooth getting out to the sidelines and rarely knocked off his feet."
Negatives: Out-positioned by opponents and easily blocked at the point of attack. Gets overmatched by offensive tackles. Lacks great speed off the edge.
Analysis: Acho has been a solid contributor the past two seasons for Texas and plays an intelligent brand of football. He offers potential at the next level at defensive end in a four-man alignment or standing up over tackle in a 3-4 system. He does not have great upside but has a lot of skills that translate well to the next level.
