Scouting Report: Nathan Shepherd
School: Fort Hays State Position: Defensive Tackle / End Class: Senior Height: 6-5 Weight: 300 lbs Projected Draft Round: 2-4
A raw prospect that grew into his body later than most, and still has room to add quality weight. Shepherd is a project, but his physical gifts will force a team to take a chance on him and develop him because of his very high ceiling. Powerful, and has the height, length, and frame to be an ideal 3-4 defensive lineman, able to anchor and maintain the gaps around him, while still seeing into the backfield. Also showed excellent ability to toss aside blockers during the Senior Bowl practices until being injured. Could take several years to reach his potential, but worth the risk.
