Colby Whitlock Scouting Report

|Height & Weight:||6'3 - 294 lbs.|
2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Colby Whitlock, DT, Texas Tech
Whitlock's production dropped a little in 2009, but he has done quite well in 2010 under the new coaching regime. Through ten games he has 45 tackles, 8.5 tackles-for-loss, 2.0 sacks and one quarterback hurry. While Whitlock may never put up huge numbers, he does a good job of disrupting the opposing backfield and can collapse the pocket and force the quarterback to make a bad pass.
At 294 pounds, Whitlock does not have the size of a traditional defensive tackle in the NFL. However, he has a big frame and can certainly add some weight and strength. If he can prove to NFL scouts that he has the ability to hit the weight room and continue to improve his strength while staying relatively nimble, he could be a fourth or fifth round selection.
