Table inside Article
Fiske is extremely quick off the snap and moves laterally very well. Finds the ball with great awareness and vision. Doesn’t waste steps getting started like other big men. Relentless motor and willingness to finish. Plays fast on film and it showed with a 4.78-second 40 time. Needs to add a little weight without compromising his current agility. His lighter frame affects his anchor as a run defender. He’ll be 24 years old in his rookie training camp, which is far younger than other top defensive tackle prospects.

OVERVIEW: With nearly 60 college games and over 2,250 snaps logged in his collegiate career, Fiske is finally ready to make the NFL jump. He played five seasons with Western Michigan and logged 148 tackles with 27.5 for loss and 13.5 sacks. Once entering the transfer portal as a graduate, he was one of the nation's top defensive linemen targets. He landed at Florida State and produced in his only season on campus with 43 tackles, nine for loss and six sacks. His presence was a leading force on an elite Seminoles defense.
