BIO: All-Conference selection as a senior after leading the team with 72/9.5/3.5. Posted 69/15/8 as a junior after 81/12/4 as a sophomore, when he first broke into the starting lineup.
POSITIVES: Hard-working collegiate defensive end with potential at linebacker. Quickly gets off the snap with a good first step, keeps his pads low and displays a fluid change of direction. Wedges between blocks and plays with reckless abandon.
NEGATIVES: Easily knocked from his angle of attack or handled at the point. Likes to pin his ears back, take off up the field and then overruns the action.
ANALYSIS: A fiery competitor productive on the college level, Syptak must learn to be effective in reverse to have any chance of sticking at the next level.
