Wolfe is a big interior lineman who plays very instinctively to be a factor in the run game. He understands how to engage a lineman, extend his arms and read the flow of the play to move off his blocks. He sees screens well and can work off his man to disrupt plays inside.

Pead is an electrifying running back who has produced in all areas. He can catch the ball out of the backfield, make a guy miss and turn upfield for a score, or run inside the tackles. His initial step is comparable to some of the best NFL backs.

4th Round (127th)

UC Bio | NFL Draft Bio | CBSSports.com Bio

A raw, one-year starter, Robinson was not featured at UC, but should draw interest due to his measurables alone. He has intriguing timed speed to run down the field with long, loping strides. He shows blocking potential, as he has stature and long arms.

J.K. Schaffer

Schaffer is a high-motor, intense, scrape-and-flow "Mike" linebacker. He generally fits properly in the run game, though he makes most of his plays ranging outside, as he uses his hands to play over blocks and has good feet and speed to run to the ball.
