WHAT THE ANALYSTS SAY
Athletic 4-3 tackle who stacked good tape in back-to-back seasons and should garner consideration as a rotational interior lineman with eventual starter potential. He does a nice job of creating leverage with his initial strike and has the athleticism and closing burst to hound running backs with an extended pursuit radius. He flashes needed traits as both a one- and two-gapper, but better skill with his hand-fighting could help unlock quicker wins and clearer paths to the quarterback. His draft stock could be tied to how teams view his upside as a pass rusher.- Lance Zierlein, NFL Network
Jacksonville needed a little help on the defensive line. If Hamilton pans out could be a key guy for the next 7-10 years. He could benefit from better coaching, which he should get in Jacksonville. He will have to chase around DaShaun Watson and others within the AFC South.
