Several mechanical breakdowns in Tom Coughlin caused a delay in the process. We apologize for the inconvenience. Now that the proper parts are in place, The New York Giants, with the 12th pick in the draft, select:

Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh State

Year: Senior
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 285lbs
Arms: 32 5/8"
Hands: 9 7/8"
40-yard: 4.68 seconds
Bench: 35 reps
Vertical: 32"
Broad jump: 116"
3-cone drill: 7.11 seconds


2013 ACC Defensive Player of the Year
2013 Bronko Nagurski Award
2013 Chuck Bednarik Award
2013 John Outland Trophy
2013 Vince Lombardi Award

Quick off the snap. Natural leverage. Gets under pads and into gaps. Good foot athlete -- redirects well and can work the edges and loop and stunt. Flexible enough to zone drop in short area. Plays with awareness and consistently locates the ball. Closes hard and fast. Keeps working to the ball. Disruptive penetrating ability. Outstanding career production -- 63 TFL and 27.5 sacks the last three seasons. Tough and competitive. Team captain with terrific personal and football character.

As with most undersized pass-rushers, when Donald's burst is contained his short arms limit his effectiveness. Marginal height and frame is nearly maxed out. Hands are more active than strong -- could play with more pop and power. Donald keeps his legs churning and plays with effort, but he can get caught up in the hand-to-hand combat.
