Breakdown: Crumb pops out on his film thanks to his athleticism and quickness. Crumb may be undersized, but he makes up for it with his ability to get off on the snap and his ability to beat his opponent to the spot. Crumb has enough quickness and athleticism to play several different spots up front, but his short area quickness and get off equate to an inside spot where he will have to add weight in order to hold his own at the collegiate level. Crumb has violent hands to ward off blockers and is a solid tackler.

Projection: Crumb will need to work on getting bigger and stronger, so a redshirt year is in the works. Despite this, his quickness and burst means that he has a chance to be a solid player in the future. I project him to be an DT and where he will be disruptive and get into the backfield regularly.
