Nick Speegle School: New Mexico
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 245 40: 4.75 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman
and awarded varying degrees of All-Conference
honors the past three-years. Finished with
career numbers of 91/12.5/1.5 as a senior.
Positives: Hard-working defender who's displayed a
steady line of progress the past three seasons.
Quickly diagnoses the action, efficient and takes
good angles to the play. Breaks down well bending
his knees, strong at the point of attack and
wraps up tackling. Disciplined, does not take
himself from the action and rarely caught out
of position. Chases hard to get involved and
tenacious running down opposing ball carriers.
Forceful off the edge on the blitz. Adequate skills
moving laterally and cutting off the corners from
Negatives: Tall, lacks a quick change
of direction and has difficulty getting through
the trash laterally. Stiff and slow regaining his
balance off the initial block. Does not possess a
great burst of closing speed.
up his play as a senior, Speegle really flourished
on the outside in the Lobo's three-four alignment
last year. More of a two-down defender
with marginal skills in pass coverage, he offers
solid size/speed numbers as well as growth
potential, which gives him possibilities standing
up over tackle.
