In case you didn’t know, I am a student at Virginia Tech and I go to just about every home game during the season. I try to use being at a live game as an advantage to look at certain players I know will be draft eligible in a few months. I’ll start off with Steven Friday, a senior DE who had a productive season on a young defense. Friday will be 25 years old when the draft is held, which does not exactly help his stock.
At 6-4, 250, he is a bit lean for an NFL DE, so he could be a possible fit at OLB. He had 8.5 sacks in 2010 as his first year replacing Jason Worilds at the position. He won second-team all-ACC selection in 2010, recorded 64 tackles with 15 for a loss.
His draft projection is a bit foggy, but to me he looks to go somewhere around the 5th round.
