Brandon Lang, DE, Troy

As a three year starter with the Trojans, Lang has racked up pretty impressive numbers. He played in 13 games during his freshman year, registering an above average season with 4.5 sacks in just 26 tackles. Lang was poised for a breakthrough sophomore campaign when a torn left ACL in the team's third game forced him to lose the year. However, he came back with a vengeance in 2008 posting career highs in tackles (58, 40 un-assisted), sacks (11.5), and Passes Broken Up (4). Selected to the Sun Belt All Conference 1st team, Lang eepeated the feat this year with a 69-tackle season that included 7.5 sacks. Listed as an OLB, his real position in the NFL will be defensive end. Lang shows excellent power at the point of attack. He has good pursuit skills and is a powerful tackler, able to use his hands well. He shows more quickness than speed (4.84), and is relentless and changes direction well. Lang is at best when using power moves. However, he lacks ideal size and lower body strength. At times, he plays too aggressively and out of control. Also, he is not explosive out of the blocks, lacking the first step quickness of elite edge rushers. He needs more experience recognizing the pass and must be more consistent. Lang is tough and active against the run, and he has excellent instincts to play the pass. With more experience and better coaching, he could develop into a solid NFL player -- which should make him a good third round selection.
