Billy Winn
Defensive Tackle

Pre-Combine Grade: 84.0 (Eventual Starter, 2nd-3rd round pick)

What they're saying:
Strengths
Winn has size for the position, which when paired with his speed makes him a force in the interior for offensive lines. He gets off the ball and into offensive linemen quickly. He can uncoil his hips to create a significant push and shock blockers back into the backfield. He is strong with his hands and can hold up blocks to read a play and shed them to get free and get to the ball carrier. He is able to use his hands well to disengage and shed would-be blockers away from his frame. Once he reaches the ball-carrier, he is an effective tackler. Overall, Winn is an active interior defender who can keep off blocks and stay active in the pass and run defense alike.
Weaknesses
Winn has been a productive player who shows speed and very few negative points in terms of skill set while playing within the Western Athletic Conference. If anything, teams could take a long look at his competition to see if his skills will translate, but he has excelled against stronger non-conference competition as well. Winn can struggle to get off blocks at times when engaged by a double team. He tries to overcome this by using his initial quickness off the line, but when bigger lineman get their hands on him in protection he can be slow to disengage. He is known to take a play off occasionally and can be unpredictable when it comes to following schemes.
