Draft Scout RaShede Hageman News
04/17/14 - Five players who should be on Washington's draft radar: DT Ra'Shede Hageman, Minnesota: The Redskins paid Jason Hatcher big-time money to be an impact defensive end in their three-man front, but could use more depth at the position. Many don't believe that he will be around in the second round, but if Hageman slips to pick No. 34, it would be tough for Washington to pass. The Minnesota product lined up all over the defensive line in college, but his best NFL position is five-technique end, making him a great fit with the Redskins. Hageman leaves you wanting more, but has the versatile athletic upside and physical traits desired at the position. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/17/14 - 2014 Pro Days: 19 teams watch Minnesota's Ra'Shede Hageman...Representatives from more than half the NFL teams were on-hand at the University of Minnesota pro day Monday, where nine former Gophers were among those to work out. The star attraction was Ra'Shede Hageman, the No. 26 overall prospect and No. 4 defensive tackle in this year's class, according to NFLDraftScout.com ratings. Hageman stood on his workout results from the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, but measured in at 6-feet-6 and 311 pounds and went through positional drills. "Obviously, when the coaches came, they wanted to see me do drills, see how my footwork is and just my technique or whatever," Hageman told USA Today. "So, I felt like it was a good move for me. I feel like I put a good amount of numbers just to stand out at the combine."
Hageman is seeking to become the first Gopher selected in the first round since running back Laurence Maroney in 2006. He will likely meet with teams in the coming weeks, but still has more than two months before the 2014 NFL Draft kicks off May 8. "That is a very long time," Hageman told the Star-Tribune. "So I think I'm just going to barricade myself in my room. Just play video games and just work out." - The Sports Xchange
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Combine: From 40 times to Fritos, 10 Bold Predictions: 6. Big speed. A final note on the 40; two years ago Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe sprung up draft boards by clocking in at 4.89 seconds at 6-feet-4, 346 pounds. This year's fastest "fat" guy will be Minnesota's RaShede Hageman, who measured in at 6-6, 318 pounds a few weeks ago at the Senior Bowl and may prove even faster. (Quick side note, because getting beaten to a bloody pulp is decidedly not among the things I'd like to have occur in Indianapolis, let's keep the calling 'Shede "fat" between us, okay?) - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 26. Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota, 6-6, 318, 4.89, 1-2...Former prep standout as tight end and basketball player, moved to the defensive line during his redshirt freshman season and literally grew into the position. He has it all and then some, with a combination of brute force and quick feet that has drawn comparisons to J.J. Watt, the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year (Houston Texans). - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
01/21/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl Tuesday: Trio of lineman highlight physical North practice...Scouts were greeted by a blue sky but 20 mile-per-hour winds at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, making the evaluation of quarterbacks tough. The conditions were ideal for play in the trenches, however, which is where the best talent in the 2014 Senior Bowl resides, anyway. Minnesota defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman (No. 19) and Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin (No. 25) entered the week of practice at the Senior Bowl as NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated prospects playing in the all-star game. At Tuesday morning's North team practice, it was easy to justify their projected first round grade.
The well-built Hageman flashed dominating strength and length, routinely driving opponents into the backfield with a his bull rush and showing impressive burst for a man of his imposing 6-foot-6, 318-pound frame. Hageman was tough to handle in one-on-one drills -- putting Miami guard Brandon Linder on his back during one particularly explosive rush -- but carried over his impressive play into the full 11-on-11 scrimmages, as well. He remains a prospect who flashes rather than consistently dominates but considering his power, size and athleticism, teams operating under 4-3 and 3-4 principles, alike, were taking notice. Hageman's scheme and position versatility is in stark contrast to an even flashier player -- Pittsburgh's Aaron Donald -- who by all accounts was the star of Monday's practice. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
