Considered the freak among all athletic freaks, Kwity Paye could very well be the top sleeper in the 2021 NFL Draft class right now.
At 6-foot-4, 271 pounds, Paye reportedly runs a 4.57 in the 40-yard dash with a 6.37 in the three-cone drill, showing off not only ridiculous speed but short-area burst and quickness.
Entering his fourth season at Michigan, Paye is a player who really could have benefit from another season on the field and a year’s worth of tape to get his stock maybe into the top 10 picks, but he’s going to have to rely on what’s out there as long as the Big Ten sticks with its decision not to play football in the fall.
The Falcons brought in a versatile edge player in Marlon Davidson in the 2020 NFL Draft along with free agent Dante Fowler Jr. They have prioritized bringing in pass rush help and Paye can help them further solidify that depth and bring some more burst off the edge.
