    I think he could snap up the spot currently held by Tucker or Applewhite

    He will take the spot of Harris or Tucker. Applewhite is going to be a stud.

    :lol: I don't get the Applewhite love. Over 2 seasons he's played in 15 games, he has 20 tackles and half a sack. And when he is on the field he's just kinda going through motions and taking up space...so why the love? Is it because he went to SDSU?

    Does anybody know of any decent scouting reports besides Draftcountdown's which is below?

    Of course his 40 is slow, but it sounds like he plays faster than he timed. He is intriguing and may be a great fit for this D next year if Merriman leaves. He is no Merriman, but then again Mathews is no LT in his prime either...and we don't need them to replace the talent, only the production, which both seem to have the skills and talent surrounding them to do.

    Height: 6-3¾ | Weight: 266 | 40-Time: 4.99
    Brandon Lang | Troy Trojans
    Official Bio


    Strengths:
    Terrific athlete --- Has a rangy frame with long arms --- Explosive with a burst --- Plays faster than he times --- Can bend off the edge and get around the corner --- Does a great job in pursuit --- Covers a lot of ground --- Good balance and agility --- Excellent feet --- Fluid hips and has shown the ability to drop into coverage --- Active with a fantastic motor --- Powerful hitter --- Pretty productive --- Offers some versatility.

    Weaknesses:
    Doesn't have the ideal bulk you look for --- Needs to get stronger --- An inconsistent tackler --- Questionable instincts and awareness --- Isn't overly sudden off the snap --- Poor change of direction skills --- Not stout at the point of attack --- Sub par run defender --- Doesn't always use proper leverage --- Struggles to get off blocks --- Too aggressive at times --- Durability is a concern --- Hasn't faced a lot of top competition.

    Notes:
    A three-year starter for the Trojans --- Named 1st Team All-Sun Belt in 2008 and 2009 --- Hails from the same college program that produced NFL stars Osi Umenyiora and DeMarcus Ware --- Originally signed with Georgia out of high school but wound up attending Hargrave Military Academy and a Kansas junior college to get his grades in order before landing at Troy --- Missed most of the 2007 season with a serious knee (ACL) injury --- Classic 'tweener who could project to either defensive end or outside linebacker at the next level --- Best fit might come in a 3-4 defense where he can capitalize on his ability to rush off the edge.

    He hasn't had much opportunity and was hurt all of last year. To me, it has nothing to do with SDSU, I just like the guy. I could be wrong, however I KNOW he is better than Tucker.
