3rd Julian Miller DE 94 5Sr Athletic defensive lineman that’s successfully been used as a two gap end. Intense, rushes the passer well and makes plays in every direction of the field.
3rd Bruce Irvin OLB 11 4Sr Junior college transfer that lit the Big East on fire last season with his pass rushing skills. Fast and furious up the field. Projects to OLB at the next level.
4th Keith Tandy CB 8 4Jr Underrated cornerback with an aggressive game. Plays with a large degree of suddenness, hard hitting and effective back off the line of scrimmage.
5th Tavon Austin WR 1 3Jr Productive receiver that’s shown flashes of being the “go to” guy the past two seasons. Lacks the size to be a true number one receiver yet could be a solid wide out in the slot at the next level.
6th Geno Smith QB 12 3Jr Developing quarterback with top physical skills. Must improve his timing and decision-making but offers a nice upside.
6th Don Barclay T 64 5Sr Terrific pass protecting left tackle that makes the most of his tools. May not test well it gets the job done. Will get consideration inside at guard as well.
7th Brad Starks WR 2 5Sr Dependable receiver with solid size and the ability to pick up yardage running after the catch.
FA Josh Jenkins G 77 4Sr Tough, slug-it-out, small area guard.
FA Najae Goode ILB 52 4Sr Aggressive linebacker best making plays up the field.
FA Jeff Braun T 57 4Jr Limited tackle only effective in a very small area.
