9. Conor Sheehy, DT
Unfortunately, Conor Sheehy did not get an invite to the NFL combine this season and isn’t likely to be drafted next weekend, but that doesn’t mean he won’t have a chance to make an NFL roster this summer and fall.
Sheehy was a big-time contributor for Wisconsin for three years and helped anchor the defensive line. Although he wasn’t a big sack-producer, recording only six in his career, he was a solid force who constantly ate up blocks. Because of this experience in the Badgers’ 3-4 scheme, he can play defensive end or defensive tackle depending on the team he signs with.
NFL.com gives him a prospect grade of 4.94 which means he should get an invite to an NFL training camp. They also describe him as “tough as nails” despite not having the physical gifts most linemen in the NFL have.
His best chance is to catch on with a team who is light on lineman and work his way onto the roster, which should be nothing new to Sheehy.
