    Draft Scout Snapshot: 12 GP; 12 GS; 84 TT, 20.5 TFL, 10.5 SK, 4 PBU, 17 QBH, 3 FF in '06; Named first-team All-ACC after the finest year of any Miami defender. 12 GP; 1 GS; 35 TT, 5.5 TFL, 2.5 SK, 8 PBU, 8 QBH, 1 FF; Redshirt freshman who played in all 12 games as a backup defensive end, making one start in '05. Redshirted in '04. Has a brother, Ciare, who plays football at Colorado State, and another brother, Raj, who plays football at Butte Junior College in California.

    Overview

    Tall and extremely gifted pass-rushing defensive end who was one of the team's top reserves on the defensive line as a redshirt freshman in 2005...Team's tallest player was recruited as a tight end/defensive end before settling on the defensive line...Is expected to be a top pass rusher in 2006...Has drive and athletic ability to go with a startling burst of speed...Has quick hands and feet...Sociology major.



    Analysis

    Blessed with a combination of burst off the snap and a shocking wingspan, Campbell is earning comparisons to Hall of Fame end Ed "Too Tall" Jones for his ability to wreak havoc as both a run and pass defender. A First Team ACC choice as a sophomore, Campbell finished third in the conference with 10.5 sacks in 2006 and is repeating this success in 2007 despite battling constant double-teams.

    He'll likely return for his senior season. He was a top 5 or so pick before the season, but he's fallen considerably all season. I personally don't think he's much of a prospect. He's just very athletic, even for his size.

    But why even discuss him here? There's about -5.0% chance we'd draft him in the first.

    or any other DL

    it just isnt a need

    I'd say there is very little chance we're drafting a DL, LB, TE, QB or FB with any of first day picks...and if they resign Hamlin, probably arnt drafting any safeties on the first day either

    We have had this same discussion at LB and TE for recent years. Stockpiling Talent is a GREAT thing. Dline is a rotation game.

    I dismiss nothing.

    There's a little news clipping, but of course things sometimes change between now and the deadline (if this is even true). I wasn't that impressed with him this year, but I wish I would have seen more of him last year when he was pretty dominant statistically.
