10. Hau’Oli Kikaha OLB, Washington
Hau’Oli Kikaha was one of college football’s best pass rushers in the 2014 season. He had an incredible 18.5 sacks. With a long 6’3″ and 246 lbs. frame he has the physical skill-set to intrigue NFL teams.
Kikaha is quick off the edge, he plays with a low pad level that helps him win the leverage battle and he is tenacious on the field. This is not a superior athlete but a player with superior effort with enough talent to make it work.
It is doubtful that he will dominate in the NFL as a pass rusher the way he did at Washington. He will however be a good football player who will earn his way every day. This is an easy player to root for.
