Arkridge Posted January 13, 2016 Share Posted January 13, 2016 (edited) Eric Striker, Oklahoma Sooner OLB is projected as a 3-4 round linebacker prospect. He's a smaller linebacker (6'1 220) and truly shines in open space, where most of his plays are made. Super twitchy athlete with a quick first step. He drew a lot of holding penalties beating guys around the corner as a pass rusher. Scouts worry about his size at the next level as a linebacker and don't think he's a scheme fit for a lot of defenses. Much like USC OLB Su'a Cravens, I feel Striker translates much better as a SS in the NFL with his natural skill set being running around in space. Dan Quinn loves a big safety who isn't afraid to come up and make big hits in the run game, Eric Striker has the potential to be coached up and be that sideline to sideline athlete we need roaming the field on big third downs. Does anyone else see him translating excellently as a SS in the NFL? So much value in the 3rd and 4th round with this guy.
