The 2018 NFL Draft is coming at us quickly now that we have witnessed yet another thrilling National Title Game. The yearly extravaganza will take place in Arlington, Texas, from Thursday, April 26 to Saturday, April 28 this year.
Over the span of three days, a whole host of former college football stars will find new homes where they will hopefully impress during the offseason and make a living playing on Sundays.
This video from DEVO Highlights features Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch. The 6-foot-4, 240 pound Vander Esch is a player that looks the part of an NFL MLB. After an injury took out his 2016 season, Vander Esch roared back in 2017 with a monstrous 141 tackles in the middle of the Boise State defense. Declaring early has left Vander Esch with a short body of work to grade, but scouts love his athletic potential and his ability to run and cover players over the middle to go along with his obvious tackling prowess.
