Tamba Hali

By

Positional Rankings: QB RB FB WR TE OT OG C - DE DT ILB OLB S CB - K P

Position: Defensive End

School: Penn State

Status: Senior

Height: 6-3

Weight: 265

40-Yard Dash: 4.75 (EST)

Positives:


An experienced pass rusher, Tamba Hali might be the most polished of all defensive ends in the 2006 NFL Draft. He is a natural athlete with good size and speed to match up at the next level. Hali sprung to the top of the draft board with his phenomenal senior campaign. He is a leader and a workhorse. Hali has put up big sack numbers and was a main reason for Penn State’s success this past season.

Negatives:


Hali played on a very good defense in 2005 and didn’t truly begin to shine until his senior year. He doesn’t have the quickest reactions, but good enough to make plays.

Overview:


Tamba Hali is an outstanding defensive presence and will really put pressure in the backfield. While he doesn’t have the best overall height, he has a good reach to get around the mammoth tackles in the NFL. Hali, with impressive workouts, could vault himself into the top 10 and one of the top defensive linemen taken.
