Derek Barnett, DE, Tennessee

Derek Barnett - 2017 NFL Mock Draft

The Goods:

School: Tennessee Position: DE Class: Junior Height: 6-3 Weight: 265 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1

Quick Quote:

“Barnett creates a lot of tackle-for-loss opportunities for himself and teammates with his ability to get upfield, forcing running backs to either give up yardage in an attempt to run around him or cut back inside. ” –Rob Rang, @robrang (9/13/16)

Scouting Report:

A complete player, and probably best suited to play outside linebacker in a 3-4, but could excel as well in a 4-3.  Very rarely do you find a player with this sort of flexibility in terms of position- he can play on either side, on the line or drop into coverage. No part of his game is elite, but his ability to pass rush, tackle, and drop into coverage provide a skill set that defensive coordinators covet.
