Overview:

Vanderdoes had a nice career at UCLA, where he had 115 tackles, a whopping 34.0 for loss, and just 2.5 sacks. He has great size, gets a good push on the offensive line, he gets through the offensive line with ease, and is a sure fire tackler. He also gets good pressure on the quarterback, is a good pass rusher, despite the lack of sacks, a run stuffer, and he bull rushes his way through the line. He is on the slow side, has had injury concerns, which cost him all but 1 game in 2015, and like said before, he does not get many sacks. With that said, Vanderdoes is a day 3 pick at worse.
