DJ Humphries draft profile
Size: 6’5 307lbs
- Tough-has a mean streak
- Good leverage
- Quick feet
- Great lengths
- Played against top competition (SEC)
Analysis: DJ Humphries has begun to rise up draft boards. NFL scouts are enamored with his superior length and ability to get to blocks with his quick feet. Humphries has a nasty streak when he plays–not afraid to deliver violent blows. With good hip and knee bend, DJ can win battles with defenders at the point of attack with better leverage.
Need to improve:
- Needs to become a better drive blocker
- Terrible use of hands
- Leans too much
- Needs to improve against edge rushers
Analysis: Humphries often leans when engaging defenders, failing to use his legs to drive them backwards. He relied on upper body strength to handle opponents in college, which will not work in the NFL. On tape, he was dominant against potential top five draft pick Shane Ray from Missouri, so we know the ability for Humphries to succeed is there, technique will need to be worked on. Hand placement is an issue.
Round prediction: 1st round
