S Cato June, 6-1 210 – Former Parade High School All-American who red shirted in 1998. He missed the 2000 season after tearing his ACL.
POSITIVES: June is a big athletic safety who is tough and aggressive. He does a great job in zone coverage. He does a good job playing center field, and doesn't allow the wide receivers or tight ends to get behind him. June has very good strength and is a very good tackler who will come up and hit you. He is a very good special teams player and is a leader.
NEGATIVES: June does not do a very good job covering man to man, and doesn't have great hands to pick of balls. He doesn't have great hips that allow him to turn and run with receivers.
BOTTOM LINE: June is a safety that can play in the NFL will need a year or two to reach his full potential, but right now he is a 5th round draft pick.
DE Dan Rumishek, 6-4 275 – Rumishek was 2nd team All Big Ten this year, and has played in every game since he was a red shirt freshman.
POSITIVES: Rumishek is an effort player with good technique and use of his hands. He has good size and is a run stopper that does a good job at the point of attack. He doesn't get overpowered by the offensive tackles and plays with good pad level. He has great heart.
NEGATIVES: He did have a team leading 7 sacks in 2001 but is not a natural pass rusher. He lacks quickness and speed and is too small to play inside.
BOTTOM LINE: Rumishek is a two down defensive end that will be a run stopper and will be replaced by a pass rushing specialist on passing downs. Right now he looks to be a 6th round pick.
