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

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.


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.


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.
