Kevin Pickelman

SD 2011 Ranking : #23

Position: NT

Experience : Redshirt Senior

Strengths : Veteran player who has continued to get better with each season. Key back-up at the nose tackle spot.

Weakness : Strong player stuck behind Anthony Rashad White.

Overall : When talking Michigan State defense you do not hear a lot about Pickelman unless you're talking with his teammates who talk highly of the Marshall, Michigan product.

Why They Made The List : Key player for the Spartans this fall as he'll be the main back-up at nose tackle for Anthony Rashad White. Pickelman will get plenty of reps this year and it will be those rep that could play a key role in the success of the Spartans defense.
