Draft Scout Aaron Donald News
12/17/15 - DT Aaron Donald was his usually disruptive self with five tackles, including two for loss, and three quarterback hits. Donald stuffed running back Doug Martin for a 2-yard loss on fourth-and-1 at the Rams' 23 midway through the second quarter to end a Buccaneers drive that lasted more than seven minutes. That is the kind of play that should earn Donald consideration as the league's Defensive Player of the Year.
12/13/15 - DT Aaron Donald was simply too strong, too quick and too good for the interior linemen who tried and failed to keep him out of the Lions' backfield.
"Our defense made (Stafford) hold the ball a little longer," Donald said. "I've worked my butt off during the offseason. The coaches helped me add to my pass-rushing, but I still have things to work on."
Making Donald's performance more impressive was that the Rams' defense has been depleted by injuries during a five-game losing streak. The team put end Robert Quinn and safety T.J. McDonald on season-ending injured reserve this week, while linebacker Alec Ogletree has been out most of the year.
09/29/15 - DT Aaron Donald had another outstanding game. Three of his four tackles were for losses, and he also added a sack. He leads the team with 3.5 sacks after three games.
12/22/14 - DT Aaron Donald had a rare afternoon where he was shut out in the tackle and sack department. He had gone five straight games with a sack. The only places where Donald showed up in coach's evaluation of tape was with two quarterback pressures, one quarterback hit and one caused penalty.
12/12/14 - DT Aaron Donald, a candidate for defensive rookie of the year, had six tackles, four quarterback pressures and a sack to give him 8.0 sacks for the season.
