Overview:

Nkemdiche is such a disruptive force on defense, he has the size, and he also has solid speed. He is just a stud athlete, a solid tackler. On the other side, he has issues with faster backs, he is not really a stud pass rusher, he does not have a lot of sacks in his career, and he has had off the field issues which has hurt his overall stock. With that said, Nkemdiche should be a 1st-2nd round pick, and he would be a top 10 pick if it was not for his off the field concerns.
