Senior Bowl week for DE Larry English

Day one practice is in the books and it's time for the scouts to get a better idea of what 2-time MAC MVP Larry English is really about.  Here are what various draft websites are saying about the former Huskie DE so far.  More updates will come throughout the week.

NFL Draft Countdown:

   • Northern Illinois DE Larry English was more physically impressive than I anticipated and he drew praise from coaches for his technique.

DraftBoardInsider:

A senior- member of the staff commented on Larry English of Northern Illinois as having a "great pass rush," but he’s "not sold on OLB." He referenced another person’s comments – "he’s just 6’ 2" and a great pass rusher" and made further comparisons to LaMarr Woodley’s game and physical strength and body type.

Sacramento Bee:

Northern Illinois' Larry English looked good off the edge. English was used solely as a defensive end.

RealGM Football:

Larry English, DE/OLB, Northern Illinois - More than a speed rusher, he showed some inside strength. Reminded me and another seasoned observer here of Lamarr Woodley, and looks to be best suited for playing right-outside lineback in a 3-4 defense.

Pro Football Weekly:

→ English is one of the most intriguing players to watch this week. The Bengals have him working as a 4-3 end, which is the position he played at NIU, but he projects to rush linebacker in a 3-4. English told PFW he would be comfortable in both schemes, and I noticed officials from both 3-4 and 4-3 teams chatting with him after practice. English is quick off the ball and can overmatch a slow-footed tackle with his speed.

Sporting News:

Best pass rush: DE Larry English of Northern Illinois showed explosive ability in blowing past Oklahoma All-American offensive tackle Phil Loadholt.
