Add former University of Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley to the list of defensive linemen to make a pre-draft visit to Valley Ranch. According to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, the visit is scheduled for later on this week.
Easley is widely regarded as having first round talent, but thanks to a pair of devastating knee injuries--a torn left ACL back in 2011, and a torn right ACL on March 24 of last year--he’s projected to come off the board between Rounds 3-4.
“Undersized, explosive, athletic, high-motor three-technique whose junior season was cut short in Week 3 by a knee injury,” Easley's NFL.com Draft Profile reads. “Injury history will likely affect his draft stock, but when healthy, he shows the ability to disrupt the backfield and pressure the quarterback. Fits best in an aggressive scheme in which he could use his quickness to slant, stunt and shoot gaps. Medical evaluations will determine draft standing.”
