Draft Scout Jared Crick News
12/06/12 - DE Jared Crick, a fourth-round pick from Nebraska, has been part of the rotation up front since early in the season. The coaches say he's improving each week. He's also played on the nose in emergency situations. The coaches love his attitude and athleticism. He's not going to start over J.J. Watt and Antonio Smith, but he's become a valuable contributor off the bench.

04/26/12 - ROB RANG'S TOP 50 PLAYERS OF THE 2012 NFL DRAFT: 42. Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska: A sprained knee and torn pectoral muscle limited Crick to just five games in 2011 but the 6-4, 279 pounder entered the season with first round grades from some scouts after having proven during an All-American campaign a year earlier (70 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks) that he wasn't just riding Ndamukong Suh's coat-tails. Crick isn't the fearful pass rusher than his statistics would indicate but does have the size, strength and tenacity that teams operating out of the 3-4 scheme are looking for at the five-technique defensive end position. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/19/12 - 04/18 NFL DRAFT SCOUT FALLER: Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska...While Ndamukong Suh was tearing up the Big 12 a few years back, a sophomore defensive tackle right next to him was making his own name for himself. However Jared Crick hasn't had the same type of impact since Suh left Lincoln and there are strong concerns about where he will play at the next level. After missing the second half of the 2011 season with a torn pectoral muscle, Crick looked very average in his pre-draft workouts, especially with the 40-yard dash (4.95) and bench press (26). And at 6-4, 280 pounds with shorter arms (32"), he has a tweener skill-set creates concern about where he will "fit" at the next level. Crick stays balanced and fights with a relentless attitude, but plays too high and isn't a natural bender, losing the leverage battle. Once thought to be a candidate to sneak into the first round, Crick's draft stock is currently moving in the other direction. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
