Small School NT prospects

From Rivals Top 20 small school prospects

2. DE/DT Chris Baker (6-2/308), Hampton
The Buzz: Baker, a Penn State transfer, has found a home at end in Hampton's 3-4 defense. Baker displays the power and explosion to make plays in the passing game, as well as be stout at the point of attack. He offers good versatility, with the ability to play in the 3-4 or the 4-3.

15. DT Louis Ellis (6-2/312), Shaw (N.C.).
The Buzz: Ellis was a big-time prospect out of high school who signed with Mississippi State but had academic trouble. He's an explosive athlete who makes a living getting off the snap and penetrating into an opponent's backfield. Ellis is a gifted athlete who was timed in 4.94 in the 40. He has dominated his level of competition – NCAA Division II – despite seeing consistent double teams. Ellis should see his stock rise with a strong showing in the postseason and could improve significantly on his late-round grade.

16. DT Sammie Lee Hill (6-4/328), Stillman (Ala.)
The Buzz: He's a massive nose tackle prospect who has good athleticism and quickness for his size. Hill has the body control to move laterally as well as hold the point of attack against the run. He's a developing pass rusher who has the physical attributes to become an every-down lineman.

 

Baker is generally viewed as a DE in a 3-4, but I think he would make a great NT in Phillips scheme.
