Defensive tackle, South Carolina Gamecocks
40 time: 4.80e
If the football public wasn’t fully aware of Kinlaw before the Senior Bowl, they were after he dominated early practices with arguably the best performance of the week to bolster his first-round stock. That came after a senior season in which he earned first-team AP All-America honors (35 tackles, six sacks). He spent his first season at Jones County Community College (Miss.), and he matured after arriving at South Carolina in 2018, dropping 40 pounds from his time in JC. He had three-year totals of 93 tackles (18 for loss), 10.5 sacks and 10 pass break-ups.
Kinlaw sat out after two days at the Senior Bowl due to a knee issue, which also kept him from participating at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Projection: First Round
