DE D.J. Wonnum

South Carolina | Senior

Round 4, Pick 11

Dennis Wonnum, Jr. was an all-state pick at tight end his junior year at Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, Georgia. He was an all-region pick on defense the next year, which portended his success with the Gamecocks. Wonnum played in all 13 games as a top reserve his true freshman season (32 tackles, 3.5 for loss) before moving into the starting lineup (and earning a team captaincy) the following year. Wonnum led South Carolina with 13 tackles for loss and six sacks (57 total stops) and broke up five passes in 2017. His junior year was disrupted by an ankle injury that caused him to miss eight contests (11 tackles, 3.5 for loss, two sacks in five starts). Healthy as a senior, Wonnum started all 12 games (37 tackles, 9.5 for loss, 4.5 sacks, one interception, one blocked kick). D.J.'s younger brother, Dylan, is a starting offensive lineman for the Gamecocks. -
