Robert Ayers DE Tennessee #91

Ht: 6'3
Wt: 272

Above average size and strength. Decent athleticism for his size. Has the size to play end in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defense. Good technique both as a pass rusher and run stopper. Good lower body strength prevents him from ever being dominated at the line of scrimmage.
Wasn't a starter until his senior year. Some character concerns; arrested in 2005 on aggravated assault charges.
Based solely on his play in 2008 Ayers looks like a first round prospect, but his inconsistency prior to his senior year and his off-field issues may cause him to fall. There's always the chance that a player like Ayers is a one-year wonder.
