Vallejo was highly productive at Boise State, where he played in 46 career games, had 277 tackles, a whopping 36.0 for loss, and 5.5 sacks. He is a sure fire tackler, he has good size, he really good speed, he is good in coverage, he is a hard hitter, and he creates havoc on defense. The only downside is that he is not known for getting many sacks. With that said, I see Vallejo as a day 3 pick, likely in the later rounds.
