PLAYERS
Mychal Savage
Position: DT
Class: 5Sr
Conference: Missouri Valley
HT: 6-2
WT: 290
40 Time: 5.02
Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his freshman season. Honored as an All-American last year. Senior totals included 36/7/5. He sat on the sidelines in 2008 after injuring his shoulder during the first game of the season. Junior totals included 43/5/4.

Positives: High-motor defender with limited physical skills. Explosive, fires through gaps up the field, quickly changes direction and is fluid moving in all directions. Works his hands throughout the action, plays with good pad level, and is rarely off his feet. Jolts blockers with good punch to keep them away, displays adequate speed off the edge, and works hard until the whistle blows.

Negatives: Undersized and engulfed by large blockers, easily controlled at the point. Limited growth potential.

Analysis: Savage is a competitive prospect who plays with a warrior type of mentality. Unlikely to be drafted, he has a special teams mentality and could find a home as a backup a 4-3 defense at the next level.

Projection: FA
