OVERVIEW

Stupar started sparingly throughout his career at Penn State but was active and productive when he did get playing time. He emerged as one of the leaders on a strong Nittany Lions defense in 2011. Like many Penn State linebackers, Stupar is a competitive, technically sound player who should be able to contribute early in some capacity for an NFL team. He will be a strong special teams candidate and could push to make a roster as a backup.

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS

Stupar has a high football IQ that is evident both before the snap and throughout run plays. He can diagnose plays early and fill his gap with good overall athleticism. He has deceptive speed and can meet ball carriers at the edge. He has extensive special teams experience, which will earn him looks as he tries to make a team. He comes from an NFL pedigree and wouldn't look out of place in a pro locker room this year. He has value as a pass rusher and can work within a zone scheme.

WEAKNESSES

Stupar is undersized for an outside linebacker and can get engulfed by linemen at the second level and stonewalled at the point of attack. He will have a difficult time shedding blocks in the NFL and has limited starting experience at the position. He has a tendency to overpursue, and at times can take poor angles to the ball. Stupar still looked like he was adapting to the position in his senior year.

Ranked 25 out of 135 OLBs in his draft

Good at special teams bad at MLB

we are just improving for special teams. it's the exact reason why Reedy was cut. Reedy was good at WR but we did not need a WR to train. We need ST players. and we have been living on a player to much in the past that a WR player that was good at WR would be ok on ST.

it's time to start addressing teams "needs".
