Bio: 
Two-year starter who earned First Team All-GSC honors as both a junior and a senior. Was the Gulf South Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2016. Received First Team AFCA All-America honors as a senior, finishing with 67 tackles, 13.5 sacks and one fumble recovery.
Pos: 
Tough, incredibly intense defensive front-seven player who can lineup in a three-point stance or stand over tackle. Relentless, shows good change of direction and the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack. Quick, incredibly explosive and gives effort in all areas. Fires off the snap with a terrific first step, plays with leverage and works his hands throughout the action. Shows the ability to bend off the edge and has a closing burst.
Neg: 
Out-positioned from the action by bigger linemen. Will be a liability against the run.
Analysis: 
Donahue was a productive pass rusher on the small-school level besides being an athletic prospect who gets the most from his ability. He offers possibilities as a designated pass rusher out of a three-point stance or standing over tackle and should be very effective on special teams.
