Worst Combine Performance Overall: Hercules Mata’afa EDGE Washington State

As someone who played all over the defensive front and was disruptive while getting to the quarterback at Washington, Hercules Mata’afa was someone who had to have a big combine, especially with the agility drills. Some had in Day 1/2 talks to a Day 3 selection and he did not help his stock with his sub par performance at the combine. He might have to be someone who has to find a natural position and develop there for a season as a smaller pass rusher with short arms and might not have the consistent hand technique to bend as a 3-4 outside linebacker.
