Will Aaron Donald maintain Senior Bowl momentum?

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 22, 2014 – 11:15 am

Pitt DT Aaron Donald

Pitt DT Aaron Donald

INDIANAPOLIS–Aaron Donald followed his eye-popping performance at the Senior Bowl with a focused interview with media at the scouting combine on Saturday.

“I want to continue to open their eyes,” he said of scouts who will be evaluating Donald’s workout at Lucas Oil Stadium on Monday.

The undersized defensive tackle was the most dominant player at the Senior Bowl in January, but he continues to battle size prejudice that projects him to be a late first-round pick. It’s a prejudice Donald has had to battle since being lightly recruited out of high school.

“It never got to me. It is what it is. Thinking about it ain’t gonna make me any taller. All I can do is go out and play hard-nosed,” Donald said in a short, to-the-point interview. He spoke of wanting to be an immediate impact player, though his favorite player, Geno Atkins, didn’t become a star for the Bengals until his second season. Donald has been compared to Atkins, largely because they are the same size.

“It’s an honor for people to even compare me to a player like that,” Donald said.

Donald played nose tackle, defensive tackle and defensive end at Pitt, but says he believes his role in the NFL will be as a three-technique defensive tackle in a 4-3.

His workout on Monday will go a long way toward determining whether Donald can maintain his Senior Bowl momentum, or make some team happy to have gotten a player of such talent in the second round.

    Even though we do not run a 4-3, it certainly would be nice to have an aggressive, mobile DLineman who makes plays.

    We do, Ed. Mike Daniels. If they go D-line in the first round, go with the big nose tackle Nix if possible.

    We do that “2-4-5″ formation from time to time.

    That’s the formation that Raji/Cullen/Daniels got a lot of their sacks in.

    Donald is only appealing to me as a mid-2nd rounder. Any higher than that, I don’t like the risk of a 5’11″ 285 lb. DT. I’d rather hope for Mosley or maybe Nix to fall to 21.

    Agreed Leonardo. I’d be fine taking Donald, but only mid-2nd. Not risking an earlier pick on a guy with a negative attribute (size) that you can’t coach-up. Don’t hold your breath for Mosley to be there at 21 though. Might as well be waiting for Clowney to fall to us, not gonna happen.

    Not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog.. never more true words spoken.

    I CAN’T BELIEVE SOME OF THE COMMENTS ON HERE. It’s the same nonsense people said about Mike Daniels and about Geno Atkins. Aaron Donald dominated the Senior Bowl, NFL Combine and was the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. He is not 5’11″ either, he is 6’1″ 290 lbs. and can easily gain 10 lbs. Stop gobbling up the traditional garbage about height and weight! I mean shoot, Datone Jones did a lot in 2013, right? WRONG. “But he has the ideal height and weight.” Oh yeah, good plan. I’d take Aaron Donald in a heartbeat.

    Donald’s 40 yard dash at Indy was jaw-dropping. He was the smoothest, fastest big man I have ever seen.
