Overview:

Abdesmad has great size to be a 3-4 defensive end, but he could easily play in a 4-3 scheme, as either a defensive end, or defensive tackle. He is a pure run stuffer, and a solid pass rusher. On the other hand, he does not have great speed, and he is not known as a sack specialist. With that said, I see Abdesmad being a day 3 pick.
