Doug Hogue
Round 5, Pick 157
Position: OLB
Class:  4Sr
School: Syracuse
Conference: Big East
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 235
40 Time: 4.62
Biography: "Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after posting 95/10.5/, 2 interceptions, and a pass breakup. Junior totals included 72/16.5/9.5 with one interception and four pass breakups."

Positives: "Athletic linebacker who displays tremendous skill in space. Shows good awareness and instincts to quickly locate the ball. Gets depth on pass drops, displays outstanding skill in coverage, and constantly around the ball. Very aggressive and productive in his all-around game. Fluid pedaling in reverse and smooth opening his hips in transition. Stays with tight ends or running backs down the field, plays with explosiveness, and moves quickly in every direction. Immediately alters his angle of attack and loses no momentum. Breaks down well and uses his hands to protect himself."

Negatives: Lacks bulk and easily controlled at the point of attack. Gives effort defending the run but not stout at the point.

Analysis: "Hogue showed tremendous improvement the past two seasons and ranks as one of the more underrated weakside linebacker prospects in this draft. In many ways he reminds us of former Syracuse star Keith Bullock, and like the NFL veteran, Hogue should eventually find his way into a starting unit at the next level."

Projection: 4-5
