Among the pre-draft visitors at Valley Ranch this week, the first week of pre-draft visits, was Missouri defensive end Kony Ealy, who was linked to the Dallas Cowboys through a number of mock drafts earlier this offseason.
Ealy posted a 4.92 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine, and put up the standard 225 pounds 22 times. At 6-foot-4 and 273 pounds, Ealy has some major upside.
According to Ealy’s NFL.com Draft Profile, he’s projected to come off the board in round two or three.
“Big, athletic, ascending, pass-rush talent with the size, burst and flexibility to pressurize the edge as a right defensive end,” the profile says. “Is not a finished product, particularly as a run defender, but should only become more disruptive as his strength, technique and savvy catch up with his natural physical ability. Could also draw looks as a 3-4 rush linebacker.”
