100 in 100: Sergio Kindle (38 of 100)

Sergio Kindle has been noted as one of the top prospects entering the 2010 NFL Draft. Despite some off-field problems, Kindle has really seemed to pull things together.

His ability on the field didn't really blossom until his Junior year. Kindle managed to rack up 10 Sacks that year helping to boast the Texas front seven as one of the best in the Nation. His performance dipped a bit this year but it was more due to drawing double-teams than an actual drop in performance. The Senior defensive end could possibly be converted to an Outside Linebacker once he hits the NFL but there is also the possibility of him staying at Defensive End depending on what kind of defense he gets drafted to. There's also the slight possibility that he could play a hybrid position and do both. All in all Kindle has some true potential and upside to make a name for himself at the next level.

Below we'll look at some highlights, stats, and I'll provide a projection on where Kindle could be drafted in this years draft.

 

This video encompasses quite a bit of what Kindle is capable of. There are some things that Kindle will need to develop at the next level but overall, he will more than likely be an instant contributor.

SUMMARY AND PROJECTIONS:

A tricky one to predict here. I think alot of when and where Kindle will be drafted will be influenced by the outcome of how he performs at the NFL Scouting Combine beginning on February 25th. This will be one of those players that makes or breaks his stock in specific events. I believe that he will perform up to par and will be drafted in the late 1st Round but the unknown is still always the unknown and anything can happen. Kindle is 6'4" and roughly 255 LBS.

Possibilities -- 1st Round: Picks 20-32, 2nd Round: Picks 33-49
