Overview:

Ledbetter had a nice career at Arkansas, appearing in 26 career games, where he had 104 tackles, 15.0 for loss, and 7.5 sacks. He has good size, is a good pass rusher, and gets good pressure on the quarterback. He is also a run stuffer, a tough nosed player, a hard hitter, and he plows his way through the offensive line in pursuit of the quarterback. He is also versatile, as he can lineup at defensive tackle, and defensive end, and he did put up good sack numbers in only 26 games. On the other hand, he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game, he has issues with fast quarterbacks, and running backs, and he only has 2 years at the FBS level, after transferring from a JUCO school. With that said, I view Ledbetter as a late round pick.
