    Derrick Harvey - Florida - DE - 6'4" - 260 lbs

    Only a sophomore (I think he redshirted too though). Gonna be a stud OLB in the NFL.

    Maybe, but his height makes him a natural fit for that OLB 3-4 tweener role.

    The shorter DE's seem to do better in the 4-3, because of a lower center of gravity in matching up with OT's out of a stance with their hand on the ground.

    Either way, he's gonna be good.
