2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Billy Winn, DE, Boise State
Winn looks to be a versatile defensive end prospect who can play anywhere except nose tackle. He's a very good three-technique with more than enough athleticism to seal the edge or rush that inside shoulder of the opposing guard. His quickness and burst at the snap can be very disruptive on run plays. This short range quickness allows him to get in the backfield on occasion.
With some adjustments, he could prove to be an effective nose tackle, but he is undersized for that position. While Winn is very strong in his lower half, he just doesn't have that elite upper body strength necessary to handle double teams on a regular basis. Outside of that, he does his best when he can initiate contact with his hands before the blocker can. When bull-rushing, he has to be able to stay inside his frame and drive through his body since he sometimes gets caught reaching and pushed out of the play.
