B.J. Dubose participated in two of the tests at the NFL Combine, and actually hurt himself during one of them. He pulled his hamstring while running the 40 yard dash. He was clocked at 5.06 seconds, but obviously that number is a little high because of his injury near the end of the run. He also benched pressed 225 lbs for 26 reps, which was good for 5th overall among linebackers.

Analysis from


Good initial quickness into blocker. Can bend and play under the pads of guards and tackles.


Gets too tall and can be knocked to the ground. Feast or famine when he one-gaps. Can be redirected and knocked sideways out of gap when penetrating.

Has the lower body of a defensive end, but lacks the talent and athleticism to make that his home. Has enough strength at the point of attack to be a 3-4 defensive end but is unlikely to be a plus play against the run or pass from that position.

Grade from

5.16 – Better-than-average chance to make NFL roster
