Grant Wistrom (starting in the NFL), Mike Rucker (starting in the NFL), Chris Kelsay (starting in the NFL), Jared Tomich (started for the Saints for three years) Kyle Vanden Bosch( Starting in the NFL, second in the league last year in sacks) – all have made their mark in the league and proven that for a time, nobody put out defensive ends quite like them.
But as you have seen with
Thank you U.S. Army Junior All-American Combine
Sure, Sidell was getting some attention prior to the combine, but he was sitting on "just" four offers, hoping to raise his stock.
He did……………..and then some

So, four offers has become almost 30 offers and Corley said that what he wanted to get out of that combine is exactly what he got. "You want to go against the best and the best were there," Sidell said. "I thought that this was my chest to go up against them and beat every one of them."
"I did that, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the attention, but that's a lot of offers.
His most recent offer, coming from the
Is that the final list for Corley? "No way," Sidell said. "I'm just really getting started with all this, so I don't know who is what, what they do and what the coaches are like. That's going to take awhile to figure out."
"I'll figure it out, though, but I know it's going to be a pretty long process."
At 6 foot, 4 inches tall, weighing around 250 pounds, Corley isn't the sleek like Jevon Kearse, which will burn you on the edges as they pin it back, attempting to get to the QB. And he's not the Mike Rucker type, who uses his 6 foot, 6 inches and almost 280 pounds to be that physical force, who does have the quickness to beat you off the ball as well.
Right now, at this stage of his development, Corley would like to think he has a little of it all. "I can get around them or go through them, it doesn't matter to me," he said. "Some guys I will take off the ball and others I will just drive right back into the ball."
"I just size my guy up and I'll do what I have to do."
Corley has an obsession this year as well, one his primary goals being that he wants to better by a considerable margin, his 9.5 sacks and 17.5 tackles for loss last season, which he considers very "disappointing."
