NT Neild...

When a 3-4 nose tackle is doing his job correctly, few people will notice because they tend to spend time eating up blocks instead of chasing the ball. But Big East coaches noticed Neild's ability to eat up blocks to free up linebackers in the WVU 3-3-5 defense during his senior season, naming him first-team all-conference despite making only 35 tackles, four for loss and 3.0 sacks.

It was the second consecutive year Neild received accolades with paltry statistics; his second-team all-conference junior season saw him make only 35 tackles, two for loss. His most productive season statistically was his sophomore year (45 tackles, 4.5 for loss, 2.5 sacks), the first season he was the starting nose tackle after contributing as a redshirt freshman (13 tackles, 0.5 sack).


Most people associate the 3-4 nose tackle with a wide body like Ted Washington or Vince Wilfork. But Pittsburgh and Baltimore have relied on somewhat smaller pluggers like Chris Hoke and Kelly Gregg in the middle of their defenses. Neild fits that mold to a tee, making him a likely late-round pick who expects to play for a long time.

Another high character guy:

"Developed into the leader and pace setter along the defensive line. Selected as a team captain during senior campaign. Awarded the John Russell award by the coaches during his junior season (2009) for his leadership skills."

Pretty much a squat space eater.

Glad you aren't lead analyst of the Warpath -- from your link:

Neild is a run-stopping defensive tackle who could contribute in a defensive line rotation at the next level. He is stout with a strong lower half and is very difficult to move out of running lanes. He also has very active hands to keep blockers from getting inside and flashes the lateral range to make plays outside of the tackle box. However, he lacks explosion off the line and is very raw as a pass rusher. Neild possesses natural leverage and is an asset against the run and he will likely be a middle round pick.

You also saw the part where they said he was supposed to be a middle round pick?

"Neild is a run-stopping defensive tackle who could contribute in a defensive line rotation at the next level. He is stout with a strong lower half and is very difficult to move out of running lanes. He also has very active hands to keep blockers from getting inside and flashes the lateral range to make plays outside of the tackle box.

I am betting the "not" was a word error as everything else about their profile is prototypical NT stuff and they give NO reason as to why he couldn't play NT.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft: Rounds 4-7

When I first saw pictures of him I channeled my inner Jamie Dukes and said "oh no, another white street kid." However he does have a reputation as a very hard worker and at the very least you see it in his body (no homo). Hes much more muscular then other 320 pounders you see.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft: Rounds 4-7

Just going to throw this out there. Obvioulsy Kerrigan, Jenkins, and Hankerson make the team.

I think that Neild, Hurt, Robinson, Royster, and Helu+ make the team.

I don't feel to good about Paul and Gomes, and Thompson. Then again I didn't feel good about Austin and Horton so what do I know?

I loved how he reached out from under the pile and grabbed the leg and held on!
