Bio: 
First-year starter who earned Second Team All-Big Ten honors and led Wisconsin with 12 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks in 2017, adding 41 tackles and earning an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Started two games and recorded 40 tackles (6.5 for loss) and 3.5 sacks as a junior.
Pos: 
Tall, forceful linebacker with upside. Rarely off his feet, forceful up the field on the blitz and plays with balance. Explosive, very quick off the edge and uses his hands well. Chases the action and works to make plays. Quickly alters his angle of attack and has a closing burst. Fires through gaps and makes plays against the run.
Neg: 
Often easily blocked from the action. Does not time well in the 40. Played poorly during Senior Bowl practices and did not distinguish himself in any aspect.
Analysis: 
Dooley was a consistent force on the Badgers defense the past two seasons and has the potential to start on the outside of a 3-4 defense at the next level.
