Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned Third Team All-American honors in 2016 after finishing third in FBS with 14.5 sacks and adding 54 tackles (21 for loss) and seven pass breakups. Missed six games as a junior due to a shoulder injury, making seven tackles for loss with three sacks. Named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 in 2014 with 52 tackles (14.5 for loss), 10 sacks and two forced fumbles. Started four games as a redshirt freshman, making 30 tackles (2.5 for loss) with two sacks.
Pos: 
Underrated college pass rusher with the ability to make plays in the open field. Quick and explosive off the snap, bends off the edge and keeps his feet and hands active throughout the play. Bends his knees, plays with proper pad level and is rarely off his feet. Slides off blocks to get to the action, gives tremendous effort and plays with intensity. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt, moves well in every direction and constantly gets penetration to disrupt the action. Forces the quarterback to move from the pocket or makes ball carriers re-route their runs. Moves well laterally, gets down the line of scrimmage and makes plays in space. Fires off the snap with an explosive first step. Remains disciplined with assignments and shows a good head for the ball. Relatively athletic and shows the ability to drop off the line and play in space.
Neg: 
Mostly a first-step lineman and struggles getting off blocks once engaged at the point. Does not have a big frame. Average pursuit speed.
Analysis: 
Dimick has been an underrated prospect throughout most of his college career and though he lacks great size and speed numbers, he has enough skill and the intensity to make a next-level roster as a designated pass rusher.
