Ray Drew – Defensive End

Drew is a player that will end up being look at as a steal when all is said and done. He’s projected as a 5th or 6th round pick, but he’s got starting talent and put with the right team he can become a real stud.

Most of the downside to Drew is directed more at his desire and effort rather than talent. It could be that a few years with Todd Grantham and all the position changes soured him as a Bulldog, but he’s got tremendous ability.

He won’t be a double-digit sack guy, but he will be a solid end, possibly hybrid. He’s got flexibility having played in both 3-4 and 4-3 schemes, and is very quick to the ball.

Likely Landing Spot: Kansas City Chiefs (5th Round, 36th or 37th pick/172nd, 173rd overall)

The Chiefs have two compensatory picks in the 5th round, and could use one of them on a project like Drew. Head coach Andy Reid is exactly the kind of coach that Drew needs, and defensive coordinator Bob Sutton is a perfect fit for Drew’s personality.

Between Reid and Sutton they can get Drew back to reaching to hit his potential, and see if the word from SEC scouts is wrong. They have a deep defense, so making the roster would take hard work. If Drew were to get that far, his ceiling is pretty high.
