Michigan State redshirt junior edge rusher Shilique Calhoun "us[es] his long strides to gain instant momentum," notes CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler.
Calhoun's ability to create momentum from the snap allows him to "lean into blockers to transition [his] speed into power," wrote draft analyst Brugler. While the 6-foot-4, 250-pound redshirt junior is more polished as a run-stopper than a pass-rusher, he did notch a personal-best with eight sacks a season ago, to pair with 39 tackles (12.5 for loss). A consistent 2015 campaign would help to smooth out some of the criticisms that have been levied against him. Notably, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline recently labeled Calhoun "overrated," grading him out as a possible third-round selection on the basis of his lack of size and a deficit in speed that would prevent him from moving to linebacker.
