High School Accolades: 2014 WFCA Defensive Player of the Year, 1st team All-State, 1st team All-Area by Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Senior Stats: 54 tackles, 2.0 TFLs, 3.0 sacks
Our View: David Pfaff is a name that many have overlooked as higher-rated prospects were in the mix throughout the process, but donâ€™t sleep on the future of Pfaff so quickly. Pfaff didnâ€™t get a lot of attention in the recruiting game because he simply didnâ€™t want it.
That doesnâ€™t make him a bad player, in fact being the state Defensive Player of the Year should speak enough about his ability for you. Plus, thereâ€™s the whole pedigree of the Homestead program to help and the fact that his film does most of the talking needed.
He plays with great pad level, but the question is if heâ€™s got the speed to really flourish at the next level. At 253 pounds Pfaff also wonâ€™t struggle to get the weight heâ€™ll need to contribute at defensive end for Dave Arandaâ€™s scheme. In fact, he could be one of the more versatile players on the line in this class.
Pfaff has an uphill battle to be an early contributor, but he screams the classic Wisconsin developmental prospect from in-state. Letâ€™s see if it actually happens at the next level.
