Jurrell Casey
Round 3, Pick 77
Position: DT
Class:  3Jr
School: USC
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 6-0.5
WT: 300
40 Time: 5.04
Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore season. Junior totals included 67/4.5/11 after 59/9/4.5 the prior year.

Positives: "Stout, low-to-the-ground defensive lineman who displays strength in his lower body. Plays with good lean, gets leverage on opponents, and works his hands throughout the action. Keeps his feet driving up the field, changes direction well and has the ability to chase plays laterally. Fires off the snap, shows a quick burst, and plays with suddenness."

Negatives: Not light on his feet or effective in pursuit. Not a dominant bull rushing interior lineman. Has marginal athleticism.

Analysis: Casey was a productive defensive lineman who does not have great skills for the next level. He could be a one-gap tackle or three-technique lineman.

Projection: 3rd
