-It has been said that if you could combine Mario Williams freakish athletic attributes with Maurice Charles' football instincts you could create the perfect football player. As it is, Charles is State's No. 2 returning tackler among defensive ends. Although not as athletic as some of the other Pack DE's, Charles has a tremendous understanding of the game and nose for finding the ball. He will most likely backup projected starters Mario Williams and Manny Lawson but will see considerable playing time in the DE rotation.
