Roderick Tinsley
Position: DE
Class:  Sr
HT: 6'2"
WT: 282 lbs.
40 Time: 4.93
Conference: Southern
Biography: Two-year starter who posted 28 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss as a senior after he had 55 tackles/15.5 tackles for loss/2 sacks the prior year.

Positives: Adequately sized defensive lineman coming off a disappointing season. Quick off the snap, displays a good head for the ball and has the ability to chase the action laterally. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself, keeps his feet moving on contact and is quick in all actions. Makes plays down the line of scrimmage and easily changes direction or alters his angle of attack.

Negatives: First-move lineman who is easily blocked at the point of attack. Lacks bulk and strength and does not always play with good pad level.

Analysis: Tinsley offers solid size/speed numbers for the next level but is coming off a poor senior campaign, which has scouts questioning his next level potential. He needs to improve his playing strength yet offers enough skill to line up across right tackle as a rotational lineman.

Projection: FA
