DE DeAngelo Malone, Western Kentucky

6’3” – 243 lbs. – 4.54 Very gangly, high-cut edge; looks more like a wide receiver on tape. Fifth-year senior who was highly productive as a four-year starter in Conference USA. Took snaps both standing up and with his hand in the dirt. Shows the flexibility teams look for in a pass-rusher. Some ability to work insideContinue reading “DE DeAngelo Malone, Western Kentucky”

LB Terrel Bernard, Baylor

6’1″ – 224 lbs. – 4.59 Team captain who has been starting for the past three years. Undersized linebacker with sideline-to-sideline range and execllent intangibles/leadership skills. Despite his size, play style is more of a between-the-tackles, downhill type than someone who flows sideline-to-sideline. Has the short-area quickness and footwork to slip past some opponents, butContinue reading “LB Terrel Bernard, Baylor”

DE Alex Wright, Alabama-Birmingham*

6’5″ – 271 lbs. – N/A Tall, long-limbed defensive end who has all of the physical tools teams look for in an edge rusher; arms measure at least 34 inches.

DE Sam Williams, Mississippi

6’4” – 261 lbs. – 4.46 Well-built defensive end who has started at least six games in each season, breaking out last year.

High-effort rusher who is explosive from wide techniques, with the first step toContinue reading “DE Sam Williams, Mississippi”

DB Nick Cross, Maryland*

6’0”, 212, 4.34 Started eight games over his first two seasons before taking over the full-time starting role last year. Thickly-built free safety who played a lot of single-high and Cover-2. Plays with a relatively conservative temperament and adequate discipline on the back end, but can occasionally creep up a little bit, forcing him toContinue reading “DB Nick Cross, Maryland*”

OC Cameron Jurgens, Nebraska

6’3″, 303, 4.92 Was recruited as a tight end, only becoming a full-time center in 2019. Thickly-built center who brings a high level of intensity. Has the short-area quickness to execute pulls and climbs. Able to chip and reach a second-level defender. Keeps feet churning after contact, working hard to sustain through the whistle. VeryContinue reading “OC Cameron Jurgens, Nebraska”
