2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
Dunlap was outstanding for Florida over the past two seasons. Despite starting just two games as a sophomore in 2008, Dunlap recorded 9.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss, leading the Gators in both categories. In 2009 he was second on the team with 10.5 tackles for loss and first with nine sacks. Dunlap also made 38 total tackles (29 solo) and broke up three passes. He had no real red flags surrounding him until a December 1 DUI arrest that subsequently left him suspended for the SEC Championship (which turned out to be Florida's first loss of the season, to Alabama). He does not have a ton of starting experience, but that does not appear to be a real issue. On the field, Dunlap's talent is without question. He is even a force against the run, despite specializing in getting to the quarterback and disrupting any and all attempts at an air attack. During the season he appeared to be the best defensive end in the draft class, but that changed in part due to his DUI and mainly as a result of awesome seasons by other stars at his position. Dunlap still should be a lock for the first round, especially after running a 4.59 and a 4.57 in the 40-yard-dash at Florida's pro day. With that kind of blend of speed and size(6'6', 290 pounds), Dunlap is a physical monster that NFL teams will have a hard time passing up. Look for him to go off the board between pick 20 and 30 in April's draft.
