The young Oklahoma defensive lineman offers raw upside that is unmatched.

Over the next several months, Revenge of the Birds draft writers JK Henson and lead writer Justin Higdon will give you a look at a number of prospects throughout the lead up to the draft.

As the editor, one of the worst things to do is edit NFL Draft prospect profiles. They’re full of jargon and hyperbole. That’s why these will be short and to the point from JK and Justin.

Let’s get it started

Du’Vonta Lampkin - Defensive Tackle
Oklahoma - Redshirt Sophomore
6’3’’, 335 Pounds

My first prospect is a raw young man that has characteristics that will probably shine when the pro-day approaches. He didn’t overwhelm with stats, as he did have only 1 sack for his entire career, but showed his potential at stopping the run.

Strengths: Raw in technique makes him the hardest working defensive lineman from Oklahoma, and shows a power move that takes blockers out of position. Traditional 3-4 defensive tackle, can either play nose or end.

Weaknesses: Probably could have used another year of college, because again, he’s very much raw. Can get pushed out of position when out-muscled. Doesn’t use his weight especially well. Only knows how to power-rush.

Projected: Late Day 2/Early Day 3
Stats (2017): 23 total tackles, 5 TFL, 1 sacks
