CINCINNATI — Bearcats defensive tackle Dontay Corleone has popped up in the first round of a few 2025 mock drafts as the dust settles on the 2024 class.

Corleone landed inside mocks from the Sporting News, CBS Sports, and the Associated Press.

"The 49ers should be looking for a quick-twitch disruptor as they try to make the defensive interior a strength again. It was very curious why they passed on this position in the 2024 draft," Vinnie Iyer wrote for the Sporting News, with Corleone going 32nd.

"Corleone is a twitchy controlled mover who has outstanding strength with very good speed and quickness. He's a plus-run defender with a quick first step and plays with violent hands," CBS's Ryan Wilson wrote about Corleone going 13th to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"Did we mention this draft could be loaded with defensive tackles?" The AP's Ralph D. Russo wrote about Corleone getting picked 22nd to the Houston Texans.
