Prospect Profile: Dave Tollefson


Full Name: Dave Tollefson School: North West Missouri State Pos: DE

Ht: 6-4 Wt: 255 40: 4.74 Year: 5Sr

Bio: All-Conference and All-America selection as a senior after posting 58/16.5/12.5. Junior totals included 48/13/8.5. Has a long injury history which includes foot and shoulder problems.

Pos: Hard-working defensive end with solid size/speed numbers. Diagnoses the action, plays with good pad level and is rarely off his feet. Displays an inside move and keeps his feet moving up the field. Makes plays up and down the line of scrimmage, pursuing the action to the flanks.

Neg: Slowed by blocks, has trouble defending the run and lacks top first-step quickness.

Analysis: Size potential and the ability to make plays behind the line of scrimmage are Tollefson's greatest features, though durability issues are a major concern.
