Overview:

Price has a tremendous career at Pittsburgh, playing in 45 games, racking up 143 tackles, an amazing 53.0 for loss, and an impressive 29.5 sacks. He has good speed, is a solid pass rusher, he gets great pressure on the quarterback, and is a sure fire tackler. He is also very experienced, is a defensive play maker, he creates turnovers, he gets through the offensive line with ease, he uses his speed to get around the Tackle in pursuit of the quarterback, he is a hard hitter, and a tough nosed player. The only issue is that he is really undersized, and I am not sure where he fits best at the next level. With that said, and due to his production, and talent, I see Price as a day 3 pick, somewhere in the mid rounds.
