Overview:

Hamilton had a great career at Rutgers, notching 166 tackles, 27.0 for loss, and 11.0 sacks. He has great size from a height perspective, he is a good pass rusher, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, is versatile, as he can lineup at defensive tackler, and defensive end, and he gets through the offensive line with ease. He has had injury issues in the past, he does not have the best speed, and is on the light side, which causes him to get pushed around by bigger offensive lineman at times. I view Hamilton as a late round pick at best, with him most likely going undrafted.
