Biography: Totaled 80 tackles/5.5 tackles for loss/2 sacks as a senior when he moved into the starting lineup on a full-time basis. Also accounted for two interceptions and broke up three more passes. Junior totals included 73/6.5/2, when he started seven games.

Positives: Disciplined, instinctive football player who?s shown solid development in his game. Remains disciplined with assignments, chases the action hard and consistently puts himself in a position to make plays on the ball. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and slides off blocks. Moves well in every direction of the field, gets depth on pass drops and shows a burst of straight-line speed.

Negatives: Lacks lateral speed and ability in pursuit. Average size/speed numbers.

Analysis: Stupar plays smart, tough football and rarely makes mental mistakes on the field. He lacks great upside for the next level but could be a valuable backup in a variety of defensive systems.

Projection: FA
