Minnesota Golden Gophers defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman is under the microscope at the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Al this week as the stud interior defender could move into the middle of the first round with a dominating week of practice and standout performance in the game on Saturday.
After one day of practice he is well on his way to just that according to scouts in attendance.
Minnesota DT Hageman really impressed me today. Violent. Did a good job exploding low. Needs to get free better as a pass rusher, but wow.
Minnesota DT Ra’shede Hageman was very impressive at the weigh-ins. 6’6 318 lbs…no bad weight. He’s currently my 23rd rated player

Ra’Shede Hageman dominated the centers a few plays in a row…had to double him.

Hageman could find himself rising up team’s draft boards if he continues to excel in the pre-draft workouts including next month’s NFL combine and Minnesota’s pro day later in the spring.
He will be one of the players I will be keeping a close eye on during the game on Sunday and team’s who have a need at defensive tackle or at end in a 3-4 defense will as well.
