Wake Forests Aaron Curry could move to Middle Linebacker In Pros

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — LB Aaron Curry and CB Alphonso Smith drew a crowd at Wake Forest’s pro day, which included 41 representatives from all 32 NFL teams. Both opted not to lift or run, having satisfactorily met their goals at the combine.

Each did take part in positional drills, though.

It took Curry awhile to get going on some bag drills, but once he got warmed up, it was easy to see the athleticism that, combined with his football skills, make him a projected high pick. Some of the folks I spoke to love Curry because they say he never has a down game — that he plays at a high level week in and week out and that he is the safest bet in the draft.

The one knock is that he is not a great pass rusher. He wasn’t asked to blitz much at Wake Forest and he will have to learn some pass-rushing techniques and moves to be a force in the NFL. His limited play as a pass rusher is why Curry is projected by some teams as a middle linebacker.

As for Smith, he was very solid in defensive back drills. The projected late-first, early second-rounder performed as expected but his height — he measured just under 5-foot-9 — has teams concerned. He did not do any punt/kick return drills, but he said he would have if asked. He was not asked. Smith said if being a returner helps his draft stock, he’s open to it.
