Overview:

Kpassagnon was very productive at Villanova, with 105 tackles, a whopping 37.5 for loss, and 22.0 sacks. He has great size, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, he is also a great pass rusher, and he is a sure fire tackler. However he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game, and his production could be seen a negative due to the level of competition he faced at Villanova. I see Kpassagnon as a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
