DT Dontari Poe, Memphis, 6-4, 346 pounds, 4.98 seconds, Redshirt-Junior.
A huge man, who is big from head to toe, Poe is the type of guy that gets plugged into the middle of a 3-4 defense and stays there for a decade. In 3 seasons with the Tigers he totaled 98 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss and 5 sacks while playing nose tackle and defensive tackle. There were even some snaps at defensive end. He didn’t rack up a lot in the way of statistics, but his size in the middle of the Memphis defense left many of his linebackers uncovered to make plays. A player with his size and foot quickness does not come along often. When given the chance, any team committed to the 3-4 has got to grab a talent like Poe.
