Overview:

Stewart had a very productive career at Albany State, where he played in 39 career games, had 141 tackles, 35.5 for loss, and 27.0 sacks, proving to be a dynamic pass rusher. He has great size, is very experienced, is a good pass rusher, and gets good pressure on the quarterback. He also, as stated, is a dynamic play maker on defense, is a sure fire tackler, and a tough nosed player. On the other side, he is on the slow side, but that does not hurt his game, or ability to get through the offensive line, and to the quarterback. Some may also say his production was a product of playing at Albany State. With that said, Stewart is a day 3 pick to me for sure, likely in the mid range round, where I view him as a solid nose tackle in either a 3-4, or 4-3 scheme, along with being a key rotational player down the line when he is given the opportunity he deserves.
