Pitt DT Aaron Donald is making a name for himself at Senior Bowl practices this week. He has stood out on the field and is rising on draft boards. Here are some of the reports out of Mobile on Donald:

Pitt DL Aaron Donald is getting underneath leverage on all the OLs, and he might be the strongest guy out here. Very good. #SeniorBowl

Donald is the 4th ranked defensive tackle on CBS Sports and is projected to be taken between the 1st and 2nd round. He is a small defensive tackle, but is a playmaker. He is listed at 6-0, 285 pounds.
“There was always bad talk about me because of my size, but if you can play the game, you can play the game,” Donald said. – packers.com
