Jaguars UDFA Report - George Hypolite

One of the Jaguars main areas of weakness a year ago was the defensive line. Still trying to find a legitimate replacement for Stroud to team up with Henderson, and with questions about Meier and Landri, the team spent a third-round draft pick on Temple DT Terrance Knighton. The team also brought in former University of Colorado tackle George Hypolite to compete for a spot in the rotation.


Standing in at 6'1" and just a biscuit away from 300 lbs, the former second team All-Big 12 selection collected 45 total tackles, with seven for losses, and four sacks. An extremely intelligent player, Hypolite has a good knack for getting into the backfield and breaking up plays before they start.

Scouting Report:

"Very active DT who makes a lot of plays. Very quick off the ball and into gaps. Good athleticism and agility. Plays low with leverage and has good strength for his size. Excellent instincts and is tough to fool on draws and screens. Excellent on stunts. Pursues hard and plays to the whistle."

Chances of Making Roster:

Depending on how Rob Meier holds up, and the emergence of Landri and Knighton, Hypolite could make the roster with a solid showing in training camp. He will have to turn some heads as it will be highly unlikely for coach Jack Del Rio to keep five DT's on the active roster.

Our Guess:

With a solid camp performance, Hypolite could make the Jags practice squad.
