Overview:

Dooley finished his career at Wisconsin, where he played in 39 career games, had 84 tackles, 18.5 for loss, 11.0 sacks, 1 pass breakup, and 1 forced fumble. He has good edge rush size, he has good speed, and is a solid tackler. He put up solid sack numbers, he is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is also a relentless defender, and a ferocious defender. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a good pass rusher. He is a hard hitter, a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He is also very powerful, and he uses his power, and speed to get through and around the offensive lineman when in pursuit of the quarterback. On the other hand, he over pursues at times, he has issues with fast backs at times, and he gets manhandled by bigger offensive lineman at times. With that said, I view Dooley as a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
