PLAYERS
Jack Crawford
Round 5, Pick 158
Position: DE
Class:  Sr
School: Penn State
HT: 6'5"
WT: 265 lbs.
40 Time: 4.74
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Three-year starter who totaled 40 tackles/7.5 tackles for loss/6.5 sacks as a senior after posting totals of 14/4.5/2 as a junior, when he struggled with a foot injury Sophomore totals included 14.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks.

Positives: Large, imposing athlete who occasionally plays the part. Possesses a long, lean build, gets leverage on opponents and quickly changes direction. Easily moves down the line of scrimmage to make plays in pursuit. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself and get off blocks. Stays with assignments. Keeps his feet moving on contact and rarely off his feet.

Negatives: Struggles getting off blocks once engaged at the point of attack and lacks natural bulk. Possesses an average closing burst. Inconsistent on the field.

Analysis: Crawford has all the tools necessary to play at the next level and at the top of his game projects as a starting end in a four-man line. He should develop into a productive NFL player if he stays healthy and improves his game.

Projection: 5th
