Defensive end, Penn State Nittany Lions
40 time: 4.70
Gross-Matos was forced to show great resiliency early in life with his biological father (drowning) and brother (struck by lightning) dying tragically in separate incidents before he was 11 years old. After ascending to the starting lineup, he had super production the past two seasons, with 35 tackles for loss and 17.5 sacks.
Gross-Matos did not run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, but he finished top-six among D-linemen in the vertical (34 inches) and broad (120 inches) jumps.
Projection: First-Second Round
