There were also those that struggled and will certainly look to pick it up after an off first week. Regardless, a lot of what was seen on the field is pretty much in line with what the tape on these players has shown so far.
Heading into Week 2, new faces will continue to emerge while others might soon disappear. That’s the nature of big boards and those that stay near the top over the course run, certainly are playing their best football.
Here’s the official Week 2 NFL Draft big board.
On an incredibly disappointing day for the Texas Longhorns, it was a day of ups and downs for outside linebacker Malik Jefferson. He led the team in tackles with nine on the day in the loss against Maryland.
At the same time, he violently missed some big tackles. While he plays with aggression and incredible motor, he was missing pretty badly on some that allowed the Terrapins to make some big plays.
The good certainly was there and he laid some violent hits on the opposition. However, he’s going to have to corral those misses and turn them into tackles. Everyone loves him for his aggression, but he also needs to focus on wrapping up rather than attempting to lay the biggest hit possible.
Still, he’s going to stay up on draft boards because of the intensity that he brings and the fact he’s all over the field. He still has a long way to go and will have to show improvement in those areas that were certainly highlighted in the loss.
It was a tough day for Texas and Jefferson certainly wasn’t the only one that struggled at times. A good remedy would be bouncing back and focusing on the fundamentals in his team’s next performance.
