Aaron Curry, 2009 NFL Seattle Seahawks Draft Prospect

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.
