Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall

Vinny Curry is a well-rounded defensive end prospect out of Marshall. This member of the Thundering Herd has shown flashes of first round potential as a three-year starter.

Curry definitely looks the part of an elite, athletic defensive end at 6'4" and 263 pounds. He will have to compete with underclassmen to maintain his early round draft stock, but he's adding a great senior year to an already stacked collegiate resume.

He displays a very good array of pass rushing moves. Whether he is ripping offensive tackles to the ground or shoving them back into the quarterback, he does a great job consistently getting after the quarterback (especially if the pocket collapses). Curry will need to improve his technique on running plays that attack his side of the field. He is sometimes too caught up in attacking the quarterback that he'll either take himself out of position or a well-timed double team will severely compromise his gap assignment.

If he adds some flexibility to his lower half, Curry could end up as a team's leading pass rusher. If he shows explosion during the combine, his stock could be on the rise very quickly.

Prediction: 1st Round

Could climb as high as the Patriots first pick but I believe he'll be an early/mid 2nd rounder

ROUND 1 (as high as #25; may slip to the NY GIANTS).

Not as long as the Giants' JPP, but just as productive. Plays high, but has a very high motor. The RAVENS, PACKERS or NY GIANTS may grab this stud in late Ro
