View Full Version : I Like Larry English from NIU

He's a DE at NIU but would make a great pass rushing OLB in our 3-4. Have been watching him during Senior Bowl practices and he has great moves - and he looks pretty smart. He beat his man on most drills.

Forget these "Julius Pepper" threads: 1. Too expensive (cash and draft picks) , 2. Not quite right for our system

any thoughts?

I have him as my 2nd round pick im my mock I did today. I agree with you on this guy. A couple concerns I do have are his ability against the run and his durability. He has had a few injuries over his college career.

i like him a lot too, saw him play a few times this past year... he is good against the run no worries on that... but after the Cam Wake signing, i dont think we'll go after an OLB so quickly in the draft. but this guy is a solid LB in many ways!!!
