Overview:

Day has great size, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, and a hard hitting defensive lineman. He is also very experienced, and a tackling machine. And I believe he can play in both a 4-3 as a defensive tackle, and in a 3-4 as a defensive end. On the other hand, he is not the fastest, he gets caught up at the line of scrimmage against top tier offensive lineman, and he is not known for putting up big time sack numbers. With that said, I expect Day to be a 2nd round pick.
