Re: Mid to Late Round ILB Prospects
How about this Jake Knott. He didn't finish the season with a shoulder tear and October surgery, but that shouldn't be too serious. 6'-2" ; 243 ; projected 40 about 4.70, which is pretty good. Although listed as an OLB, he also projects inside in a 34. His pro day workout is March 26. Should be available in the late rounds unless he really impresses during the pro day workout. Until his injury, he was rated higher than his teammate Klein, by some. His rehab started in late November.
"The week of Feb. 19 was the “four-month mark” that Dr. Gordon Nuber told Knott would be the time it took for his shoulder to be completely healed. Now Knott is still working on his strength and physical ability, waiting to perform all physical tests until March 26, which is Iowa State’s Pro Day."
