NFL Draft 2012: Mike Mayock On Devon Still

Mike Mayock held a conference call with reporters ahead next week’s NFL combine and fielded questions on a number of prospects, including Penn State’s Devon Still. Here’s what he had to say.

I think as far as he’s concerned, he’s in the deepest position in this year’s draft. Prior to the juniors coming out, I had him as the number one defensive tackle in this draft. When I got a look at Brockers and Jerel Worthy, and Dontari Poe, I said oh, oh, wow.

So I have those three juniors ahead of Still. I’ve got first round grades on anywhere from five to seven defensive tackles. Now they’re not all going. But my point is depending on who you like and what scheme you play in, Fletcher Cox from Mississippi State, Kendall Reyes from UCONN, Brandon Thompson from Clemson, plus the guys I already mentioned all seven of those guys are in the mix.

Probably four or five will go in the first round. Devon Still has a great body, a great skill set. He helped himself this year but there is a consistency or lack of consistency factor that he’s got to work on when he’s talking to scouts and coaches about his ability to show up on every snap.
