|National Football League Draft Profile - Geno Atkins |
|Selection||22 (120 overall)|
|High School||St Thomas Aquinas (Pembroke Pines, Florida)|
|A two-time All-SEC selection, including Second-Team honors in 2009...Played in all 13 games as a senior, with three starts, finishing the year with 36 tackles, 10.5 TFLs and a team-high 28 quarterback hurries...When giving maximum effort, Atkins is an intriguing prospect with a great upside...Explosive off the snap with a dominant bull rush...Needs improvement on shedding off blocks to make more plays in the backfield...Relies too much on his strength and often times is neutralized by offensive linemen with good technique...Tires quickly and will need to improve his conditioning to maximize his potential in the NFL. |
