Of course, the Falcons are interested in his on-field attributes. In 2008, Etukeren was named to the All-patriot League second team after putting up 13 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. He's a high-character guy who stuck with the Hoyas through tough times, and he could be rewarded as one of those small-school players that capture the imagination of NFL scouts.
Falcons Interested in Small-School DE
Born in Edmond, Oklahoma on May 10, 1987, Etukeren comes from a high-achievement academic family. His two brothers went to Stanford and Arizona State, respectively, and his sister attended Arizona. Etukeren carried a 3.33 cumulative grade-point average in operations management, with minors in marketing and theology.
