2011 NFL Draft: Nose Tackle Rankings
Published on January 25, 2011 by Seahawk Fanatic
- Jerrell Powe, NT, Ole Miss
Height: 6-2. Weight: 330.
Projected 40 Time: 5.35.
Projected Round (2011): 1-2.
10/8/10: Powe’s stock is on the decline this season. He’s trying to prove he is a gap-shooting 3-technique. Instead, his coaching staff should let him be an immoveable object at the line of scrimmage. Powe needs to play with more power and be an anchor on the line.
5/8/10: The top nose tackle in the 2011 NFL Draft, Jerrell Powe collected 12 TFL and two sacks in 2009, earning All-SEC Second Team honors.
- Sione Fua, NT, Stanford
Height: 6-2. Weight: 308.
Projected 40 Time: 5.19.
Projected Round (2011): 2-3.
10/8/10: Fua has been a very active player this year for Stanford and I love how he stack and sheds blocks. He does a great job of taking on blocks and freeing up his linebackers to make plays. His stock is on the rise this season.
- Kendrick Ellis, NT, Hampton
Height: 6-5. Weight: 340.
Projected 40 Time: 5.41.
Projected Round (2011): 3-4.
10/8/10: Ellis has all the physical talent, but he has some work ethic concerns and isn’t very consistent in games.
5/8/10: Kendrick Ellis dominted Division 1-AA football, notching 15 TFL as a junior.
- Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
Height: 6-4. Weight: 355.
Projected 40 Time: 5.50.
Projected Round (2011): 3-5.
5/8/10: Like Terrence Cody, Phil Taylor’s weight will need to be monitored. The prospect of adding a 355-pound nose tackle sounds nice until he shows up to training camp at 390.
- Ian Williams, NT, Notre Dame
Height: 6-2. Weight: 307.
Projected 40 Time: 5.25.
Projected Round (2011): 3-5.
10/8/10: Williams has had a good season for Notre Dame. He has the bulk you look for to hold up at the point of attack and he exhibits good power with a nice hand punch. His range is limited to make plays outside the phone booth.
- Anthony Gray, NT, Southern Miss
Height: 6-0. Weight: 314.
Projected 40 Time: 5.22.
Projected Round (2011): 5-7.
5/8/10: A solid nose tackle who earned an All-Conference USA honorable mention, Anthony Gray had 7.5 TFL and two sacks in 2009.
