2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
Poe will need to work on his conditioning if he wants to contribute on every down. With that in mind, Poe can power through double teams at times. He's strong enough in his upper body to grab hold of backs and bring them down with one arm. NFL scouts are going to want to see him develop more pass rush moves to split double teams and attack different gaps.
Poe's quick feet give him good burst in tight spaces. Finds the running lane and breaks down quickly to slow down the ball-carrier. He's rarely beaten off the line and uses his long arms to initiate contact and leverage.
After an excellent combine, there is talk that Poe could be taken in the first half of the first round. That's a bit optimistic, but he's certainly solidified his place as a top defensive tackle prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft.
