2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Nick Fairley

Nick Fairley, DL, Auburn (6'5" 300 lbs.)

Positives: Good sized defensive lineman with quickness to get off the ball. Has a mean streak and plays with a lot of intensity. Fits best in a 4-3 scheme as a DT. Scouts compare him to Warren Sapp.

Negatives: Some have questioned his work habits, but that's difficult to quantify. Has had a tendency to wear down as the game progresses. Plays with a mean streak, took some undisciplined penalties and some cheap shots during the season.
