George Hypolite DT 6'1 299 Colorado 5.05

By: Robert Davis

Hypolite was very impressive as a true freshman that the Buffs staff burned a redshirt year to keep him in the rotation. He only had ten tackles on the year, but did see the field as a tackle and end. He moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore, and responded with 50 tackles, ten for loss, and 2.5 sacks. Hypolite continued to improve as a junior, this time earning All Big 12 honors while tallying 44 tackles, 11 for loss, and six sacks on the year. As a senior, he had 45 tackles, seven for loss, and four sacks.

Strengths

Hypolite is a hard working, relentless interior lineman that will not be outworked. He is a good athlete, with the quickness to consistently get penetration and the speed to track down the ball carrier. Hypolite is an excellent penetrator, and is tough to block once he gets moving forward. There may be some untapped potential with him, as he has only played football for six years, only four of them as a defensive tackle. He is also one of the most respected players in college football, as he routinely spends his free time helping out people in need in the Boulder area. He has spent time with children, AIDS patients, and battered women.

Weaknesses

Hypolite is short and may have already maxed out his frame. He does not appear to have much more room for growth, and that may hinder his upside in the NFL. He is strong but can be overpowered and worn down by bigger lineman at the college level, a trait that will only get worse in the NFL.

Future

Hypolite is a very good pentrator, but he can be taken out of running plays too easily. He will not bring much value to teams needing someone to hold their ground and clog running lanes, but he could provide a boost to a team in search of penetration ability. Whoever selects him will get a player that could have some upside left, and one that will do whatever it takes to get on the field and help his team win. With a lot of teams in search of players that do not present problems off the field, Hypolite will be a welcomed addition to any NFL team.
