 Career:

Pros:

Should be adapt at playing both 4-3 and 3-4 in time

Has great size/speed combination

Very sound at stripping the football

Explosive tackler

Has been productive for 3 years

Gained 20 pounds of muscle this off season without losing speed

Great agility at turning corner around the tackle

Quick, quick, quick

  Cons:

Will need time to refine his pass coverage

Has not played great competition

Before this season he was getting exposed in the run game

In a 4-3 might be relegated to passing downs

limited number of pass rushing moves

 

 Player Comparison:           LaMarr Woodley

 Round Projection:               Mid Second Round

 Summary:

LaMarr Woodley is the comparison here due to similar body builds and how they were used in college versus how they will be used in the pros.  Only difference is Woodley played elite competition.  Still a 3-4 team needing a pass rusher will likely select him in Round 2.  Curry helped his stock out a ton by gaining 20 pounds and not losing any speed.  With a season or two to work on his coverage skills I believe Curry to become a 9-10 sack a season talent.  Teams like Dolphins, Jets, Bills, Patriots, Packers, and Cowboys should take a long look in Round 2 on this guy.
