Dontari Poe

Pick: 11,
Player: Dontari Poe,
Team: Chiefs,
Position: DT,
School: Memphis,

The 346-pound Poe was a tour de force at the scouting combine, when he ran a 4.96-second 40, recorded a 29 1/2-inch vertical leap, and bench pressed 225 pounds 44 times. "I think I'm explosive - very explosive," he said before that performance. "That's probably my biggest strength. Most people think just because I'm big I do nothing but [overpower] you, things like that. I try to use my quickness to my advantage." The question many scouts have is, where is that potential on tape?" -Sam Farmer, Tribune Newspapers
