Analysis:

Ra’Shede Hageman makes the list simply because he’s a giant human being with incredibly physical skills. He’s not a great football player at the moment. Based on his measurables, he should be a top 10 pick. But he’s not a dominant force by any means. He’s easily blocked one on one and he doesn’t have a great motor. His pass rushing needs coaching and he needs to play with more fire. A team with a deep roster who can afford a bust should pick Hageman.
