    Kansas Jayhawks Football: Linebacker Justin Springer Flashes Pro Potential

    At a tall 6' 3" and weighing in at 237 pounds, Justin Springer has the size and the potential for physical growth NFL scouts look for in an inside linebacker.

    Georgia Tech's relentless rushing attack provided a rare opportunity for Springer to pile up a career game, but it still takes a great football player to stack up 15 tackles (three for loss and one sack) against an offense and an overall team as quality as the Yellow Jackets.

    Big games on big stages are what it will take to put Springer on the NFL map.

    But how does he stack up to other potential draftees?

    In comparison to last year's draft, Springer matches up nicely with a number of different inside prospects.

    In terms of size and speed, Springer is probably somewhere in between fourth-rounders Roddrick Muckelroy (Texas) and A.J. Edds (Iowa). He plays faster than his times will show and, while he lacks elite pop, his instincts and downhill mentality get him into the action all over the football field.
