PROSPECT SUMMARY – QUINTON BOHANNA

Kentucky nose tackle Quinton Bohanna is an old-school interior defender who will be best served in a traditional role as a two-gapping nose at the pro level. Bohanna offers looming size and power on the interior but struggles at times with leverage, pad level, and consistency in anchoring in the middle. Any team who invests in Bohanna will need to hope that he’s able to maintain his reduced size after he showed up at his Pro Day approximately 30 pounds lighter than his listed weight (357 lbs) on the Kentucky roster. The biggest barrier to success for Bohanna will be his antiquated role: he’s a scheme-specific player that most teams don’t really carve out an active roster spot for in the modern game, so he’ll need to thread the needle to find a home in the pros. 

Ideal Role: True nose tackle.

Scheme Fit: Odd front, two-gap system.
