Published on January 10, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

aaron-curry

Outside Linebacker

Height: 6’ 3”

Weight: 246 lbs.

Speed: 4.6

Wake Forest

Senior

Strengths: Speed, size, experience, pass coverage ability.

Weakness: Reading and diagnosing plays.

Meet one of the best linebacker prospects in college football. Entering his senior year he has been placed on the Lombardi, Butkis and Chuck Bednarik Award Watch list and probably one of the top 20 prospects for the 2009 NFL Draft. Curry hits like a ton of bricks, is very light on his feet, but still strong, he can run a 4.60 forty yard dash and routinely “power cleans” close to 400 pounds.

Curry has great hands and is very good in pass coverage, last season as a junior, he set an ACC record 256 yards on four interception returns and returned three for touchdowns. Curry was a Second team All-ACC linebacker as a junior. He recorded 99 tackles and led his team with 13.5 tackles for loss and three sacks during the season. Curry is very under rated and relatively unknown, but draftniks have known him for a couple years and the rest of the nation will soon here his name called in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

He ranked second on the team with 83 tackles and tied for fourth on the team with 8.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. He also displayed his ability in pass coverage breaking up three passes and intercepted one; he also intercepted a pass in the ACC Championship Game and returned it 30 yards.

As a Red-shirt freshman he started the final 10 games and was named second team Freshman All-American and voted to the ACC All-Freshman Team by The Sporting News. Curry was the team’s fifth-leading tackler recording 45 tackles and ranked third on the team with 7.5 tackles for loss.
