NFL Scouting Combine Watch: McTelvin Agim

With the 2020 NFLScouting Combine in progress in Indianapolis, it's time to take a look at another intriguing prospect to keep an eye on this weekend.

Today, we take a quick look at Arkansas defensive tackle McTelvin Agim.

Agim played most of his college career at defensive end and is still learning how to play inside. The positive to take away from that is NFL coaches will be able to mold him to their liking as opposed to having to break him of bad habits.

From a pure athlete point of view, Agim might be one of the best available players at the position. His burst off the line of lightning-quick, and you should see that reflected in the speed and agility drills he runs on Saturday at the Combine.

The 6-foot-3, 309-pound senior went under the radar during his collegiate career, largely because he played for one of the SEC's worst teams. Even so, he still managed to make an impact and put up respectable numbers playing in college football's toughest division, the SEC West. He faced top-flight offensive line competition every week and was consistently productive when it came to gap penetration and rushing the passer. He logged five sacks during the 2019 campaign.

As it stands, McTelvin Agim is probably a late-round pick. That said, if he shows up to his workouts and rises to the top of each category, that could very well be enough to make some team pull the trigger on him as early as the fourth round. His athleticism and ceiling are going to be tough to ignore. Players who can rush the passer up the middle are at a premium, and Agim's ability to do exactly that gives him a lot of value even before he works out this weekend.
