Looking for a game-wrecking nose tackle? Vita Vea out of Washington might be your guy. This 6-foot-5, 340-pound behemoth performed 41 reps of 225 pounds at the combine bench press, yet still managed to run a respectable 5.1 in the 40-yard dash.

He was considered a top-10 run stopper and pass rusher at his position by Pro Football Focus, combining for 99 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks in his three-year career.

At age 23, Vea is slightly on the older side, but this 2017 Morris Trophy winner could become an asset to an NFL team’s interior defensive line for years to come.

PRODUCTIVITY SCORE: 132.0 | ATHLETICISM SCORE: 118.6 | AGE SCORE: 127.0

FINAL SCORE: 126.0
