Vita Vea, Defensive Tackle

We’ve reached the point in the calendar where even the tiniest nuggets of information regarding a possible first-round pick are worth dissecting.

That applies to defensive tackle Vita Vea, who’s a constant disruptive force up the middle and should be a top-20 selection. He might even come off the board in the top 10.

Vea shined during his brief appearance at the combine, showing off his strength at 6’4″ and 347 pounds. He recorded 41 bench-press reps, but then his afternoon abruptly came to an end when the giant lineman suffered a hamstring injury while lumbering through the 40-yard dash.hi-res-e9a5c19d490a68e8b37a1f8bc5f80bb8_crop_exactnfl jersey for cheap

But even at his size, and even during a run in which Vea injured himself, he still posted a time of 5.10 seconds. He has rare light, nimble feet for such a massive defender in the trenches, which is what makes him a threatening and versatile presence up front. He finished 2017 with 30 tackles (5.5 for a loss) and 3.5 sacks.nfl jerseys cheap authentic

The hamstring injury kept Vea out for drills and testing during the Washington Huskies’ pro day but only because it was shortly after the combine. Any general manager who cares about the injury going forward shouldn’t be a general manager much longer.

Vea recorded 39 pressures in 2017, per PFF, and his power as an interior pass-rusher is why MillerĀ  projects him as a future member of the Washington Redskins after being selected 13th overall.
