Bio: 
Three-year starter who missed four games in 2016 due to concussion issues, which have led him to announce his retirement. Made 45 tackles (9.5 for loss) with 2.5 sacks in eight games. Posted 60 tackles (14 for loss) and two sacks as a junior. Sophomore totals include 41 tackles (11 for loss) and 3.5 sacks.
Pos: 
Productive college defensive end who made a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Plays with proper pad level for a tall lineman, works his hands throughout the action and plays through the whistle. Effectively fights with his hands, explosive at the point of attack and attracts double-team blocks. Rarely off his feet and effectively occupies blockers if he can’t make a play on the ball.
Neg: 
Easily removed or sealed from the action by a single opponent. Displays minimal strength and power. At times has his legs easily taken from underneath him. Average first step quickness. Dealt with concussions last season and later announced he was retiring from football.
Analysis: 
Replogle possesses the size, skill as well as growth potential to be used as a three-technique tackle or possible possibly two- gap end but has decided not to seek a career at the next level.
