Overview:

Holland finished his career at Auburn, where he played in 40 career games, had 71 tackles, 18.5 for loss, and 13.0 sacks. He also had 1 pass breakup, 5 forced fumbles, and 2 fumbles recovered. He has good size, he has good speed, he is a solid tackler, a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a good pass rusher. He is also a very relentless defender, a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He also gets a good push on the offensive line, and does not get pushed around that easily at the line of scrimmage. On the other hand, while he has good speed, he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Holland being a day 2 pick when it is all said and done.
