ERIC EDHOLM: Michigan edge Kwity Paye is an extremely well-built pass rusher with plus athleticism and a strong work ethic to boot. Got a lot of respect from the Michigan program over the years. He's got the ability to play multiple spots on the line, but his college production did run a little bit hot and cold, and he's a little bit on the inexperienced side-- less than two years as a full-time starter. But the total package looks pretty enticing overall, and some scouts think his best ball is ahead of him. In time, he could develop into the next Za'Darius Smith if he keeps coming on.
