Blue-Gray Preview: The Defense
Small schools offer two outside linebackers to watch. Steve Baggs of Bethune Cookman is an intelligent defender that really likes to mix it up and is best in the box. Hofstra's Renauld Williams is an athletic linebacker with weak-side size and strength. Both have been productive collegians.
The defensive backfield took a hit when Ricardo Colclough of Tusculum, Joey Thomas of Montana State and Keith Smith of McNeese State all bypassed this game in favor of the Senior Bowl. Randee Drew of Northern Illinois is a little undersized but has jumped out this year while Chadron State's Marvin Jackson could be a real sleeper coming into the draft. Jackson has excellent size/speed numbers, cover skills and is a shut down corner at a D-II level. He's been productive four years running not only as a corner but also as a return specialist and will get a lot of looks this weekend.
Note: The TFY Draft Preview will be offering full coverage of all Blue-Gray practices to the Insiders.com premium subscribers starting Saturday. Reports on how each player did every day at practice will be posted, as will whom NFL teams are looking at in Montgomery plus rumors swirling around the field.
