Devon Still is one of the top defensive tackle prospects in this year's draft.
The Big Ten defensive player of the year wrapped up his senior season at Penn State with 17 tackles for a loss, the most on the team.
He also tied for the second-most sacks among the Nittany Lions, with 4.5.
The 6'5", 300-pound tackle surprisingly brings some speed to the table. He clocked 4.95 seconds in his most recent 40-yard dash, impressive for a guy of his stature.
The Patriots would benefit having a large and somewhat quick DT like Still. His strength at Penn State was stopping the run, but he is also able to bring pressure.
Still's key quality contribution is his determination and resilience.
No. 71 had to redshirt his freshman year after tearing his ACL and MCL in preseason practice.
Worse, he received another thrashing blow the following year, breaking his left ankle in preseason camp.
Still refused to miss out on another whole season and ground his way through rehab, earning the right to play 10 snaps in Penn State's final game of that year.
Still showcases his fierce attitude, discussing his injuries:
When I got injured my first two years at Penn State, a lot of people said I wouldn't be the same player as I was when I showed up on campus. I think that drove me just to prove everybody wrong. To this day, I don't think I'm where I need to be right now. I want to make my mark in the NFL, just as I did at Penn State, and become one of the best.
Sounds like a Patriot to me.
