Draft Scout Ra''Shede Hageman News
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Falcon's picks: Round 2/37 - Ra'Shede Hageman, DE, 6-6, 310, Minnesota...Hageman played nose tackle for his final two seasons with the Gophers, but the Falcons said he'll play defensive end. Falcons coaches got an up-close look at Hageman during Senior Bowl week, where he dominated the one-on-one drills the entire week. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 40/5. Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota, 6-6, 310, 4.92, 1-2...Physically, Hageman has it all and then some, with a combination of brute force and quick feet that draws comparisons to J.J. Watt, the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year (Houston). Former prep standout as tight end and basketball star, moved to the defensive line during his redshirt freshman season and literally grew into the position. After a dozen foster care homes, Hageman was adopted by lawyer couple, worked to overcome youthful anger issues and now, acknowledging his three-year old son as a stabilizing factor, is ready to become a 24-year old NFL rookie. Frankly: All due respect to dramatic and impressive ascent in tough life, Hageman remains a boom-or-bust prospect. He has ability to be one of the best in the game, but will need the right team environment to make this work for all concerned. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
04/29/14 - Five players who should be on Arizona's draft radar: DT Ra'Shede Hageman, Minnesota: The Cardinals have met with Hageman a number of times, indicating they are considering him with the 20th overall pick. And the interest is understandable as the former Gopher projects very well as an athletic 5-technique (his best NFL position), who will be able to give Arizona depth on the defensive line and be the long-term replacement for soon-to-be 33-year old Darnell Dockett. Hageman is at his best when he stays low and fights through the limbs of blockers, but that doesn't happen enough as he routinely battles leverage problems. He needs to show better consistency at the next level, but he likely ends up in the first round by a team looking to capitalize on the splash plays he had in college. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
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
