The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected EDGE rusher YaYa Diaby out of the University of Louisville. Diaby is an outstanding athlete that ran a 4.51 forty and posted a 120 broad jump along with a 37-inch vertical.
In 2022 as a second-year senior Diaby played in 12 games and contributed on 452 snaps. He recorded 14 tackles, 8 assists while making 14 stops. As a pass rusher, he produced 31 total pressures, which included 16 QB hurries, 6 QB hits, and an impressive 9 sacks on the year.
There is no doubting YaYa Diaby’s athletic ability which is sky-high – he’s got the elite speed and power you look for in a pro edge rusher. However, after checking in at 260lbs is a bit of a tweener. The Buccaneers announced him as an OLB, so we’ll see where he ends up lining up.
