Former Ohio State Buckeyes standout Malik Harrison got a lot of television time as a member of the Big Ten’s best team. This six-foot-two, 246-pound prospect worked his way into 205 tackles, nine sacks, an interception, and nine pass breakups over the course of 42 career games.
He’s one of those guys that actually got an invite to the Senior Bowl and did well. In his draft profile, Lance Zierlein compares him to K.J. Wright. If one of the NFL’s 32 teams spends a mid-round pick and gets K.J. Wright out of the deal, they should be pretty satisfied.
Troy Dye‘s run as a senior wasn’t nearly as impressive as what he did as a sophomore or as a junior. He racked up 107 total tackles and four sacks and 109 tackles and a sack in year two and year three respectively.
The numbers dipped slightly in his campaign as a senior, but he was still solid. No one’s going to complain too much about 84 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions, four pass breakups, and two forced fumbles.
It’s hard to imagine him slipping past Round 3, but it’s possible.
