Athleticism seeps for RaShede Hageman, who may be the biggest boom/bust guy on the list.

Size and quickness makes Hageman a fit up and down the line, which will give Bob Sutton the ability to be flexible with his play-calling in any given situation. Comparisons to J.J. Watt and John Henderson have been thrown around because of his body, which gives you an idea of the upside potential within Hageman.

Will he ever reach that ceiling? The knock on Hageman is his inconsistent tape, which isn’t a good sign considering he enters the draft as red-shirt senior. Identifying where the ball is and his motor have also been questioned.

Here’s Rang on Hageman:

"Alternately lining up over the nose or as a three-technique, Hageman consistently pushes his counterparts deep into the backfield, demonstrating rare upfield burst for a man of his size, as well as impressive strength. A brute in the middle, combining excellent size and power to push blockers deep into the pocket."

Hageman is considered a late first round pick.
