Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior with totals of 66 tackles/12 tackles for loss/3 sacks. Junior numbers included 36/5.5/2.5 after he posted 45/5/2 as a sophomore.
Positives: Tall, hardworking lineman who gives effort on every down. Displays solid first-step quickness, fires through the gaps of the offensive line and possesses good instincts. Keeps his feet driving up the field on contact, chases the action hard and effectively diagnoses the action. Plays with a nasty attitude. Wraps up when tackling. Works hard to play with good pad level.
Negatives: Lacks bulk, functional football strength and can be an easy target for opponents because of his length. Marginal speed and pass rushing skill.
Analysis: Conrath was an effective college player who can line up as a two-gap end or at tackle on a four-man line. However, he?s the type defender who's better occupying blocks rather than making plays on the ball.
