Witten went up against Baylor this past weekend despite showing flu-like symptoms earlier in the week. He wasn't able to get a sack on the elusive Robert Griffin, but he still had a couple of pressures and three tackles.
Witten was overshadowed by players like second-round pick Cody Brown last year, but he has come on really strong so far and his stock is on the rise. He has decent size at 6-4 and 250 pounds, good speed around the edge, and superb pass-rushing moves, so scouts could look at him as a possible 3-4 rush linebacker.
We will be keeping a close eye on Witten as the season progresses. He started out the season as a possible late round selection, but if he continues to impress he has top 100 potential (first three rounds).
