Scouting Report/Player Notes

Big, long defensive line prospect who is likely best fit as a five technique with a 3-4 team in the NFL. Returning leader and fifth year senior on a defensive line that will anchor one of the top defensive units in all of college football. Very good run-stuffing defensive lineman who had 8.5 tackles for loss and three sacks in 2012 as a junior. Stinson became a full time starter in 2012 after playing a big part in the Alabama rotation as a sophomore, even earning two starts as a redshirt freshman. He is expected to contend for All-SEC honors as a senior. As an NFL prospect, he could be a first or second round DE in a 3-4. After spending Sundays working the merchandise booth at Dolphins games as a high school kid in Miami, Stinson will now be on the field. Saw a great rise in his status as a prospect this past year, jumping from being a relative unknown to being one of the top senior DE prospects in the country. Good athlete being a former linebacker.
