NFL DRAFT PREVIEW

Shilique Calhoun

COLLEGE: Michigan State Spartans
HT/WT: 6-5 / 251 lbs.
PROJECTION: 1st-3rd Round

ANALYSIS

A year ago many had Calhoun slated for the first round.  So still have the former Spartan being able to go in the first round, but some feel there are questions to be answered before he can be considered a solid pick.  Is he a defensive end or a 3-4 outside linebacker?  The athletic ability is there for Calhoun to be a solid player at the next level.  But there is work needed to be done especially in run support.  His performance at the combine and at pro-day will give us more on where he may end up in the draft as he can show off his athletic ability with his natural flexibility and quick feet.  While teams will be watching his 40-time, they’ll be paying more attention to his first ten yards than the overall 40.
