Draft Scout Shayne Skov News
01/01/14 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Linebacker Shayne Skov helps anchor the Stanford defense that has allowed just 18.6 points a game this season and less than 90 yards rushing a game. He has 100 tackles and is much like Bullough in the sense that he gets the Stanford defense in the right position and knows the opposing offense as well as any player on the field. - The Sports Xchange
12/03/13 - 2013 ALL-PAC-12 FIRST TEAM (COACHES): LB Shayne Skov, Sr., Stanford...Skov has led Stanfordís defense in tackles with 91 so far including a team-best 48 solo efforts. He has 10.0 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, 10 quarterback hurries, two forced fumbles and two recoveries to go with four pass breakups. Skov enters play Saturday eighth in Stanford history with 335 career tackles. - Stanford football
11/11/13 - WEEK 11 PAC-12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Stanford LB Shayne Skov, a fifth-year senior from Guadalajara, Mexico., led a Stanford defense that stifled the No. 2-ranked Oregon offense en route to a 26-20 win on Thursday night at Stanford Stadium. He collected a team-leading nine tackles, including two tackles for loss, and added two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, two quarterback hurries and a pass breakup as the Cardinal limited a Duck rushing attack that was averaging 331.5 yards a game to just 62 total yards rushing.
Both of Skovís forced fumbles ended Oregon scoring chances, including a forced fumble and fumble recovery inside the five-yard line as the Ducks were looking to pull within seven in the first half. Also nominated for defensive player of the week honors were linebackers Myles Jack of UCLA and Jason Whittingham of UTAH; and defensive tackle Will Sutton of Arizona State. - Pac-12 football
10/21/13 - Skov, Mauro bully Bruins in Stanford's win...One of Skov's greatest attributes has always been aggression in taking on and shedding blockers in the hole. This year, however, he has shown greater patience when breaking down with ball-carriers in the open field because he has regained his explosive closing ability. This has led to less lunging by Skov and more secure textbook tackling. Skov's over-aggression got the better of him early in this contest, however, as he failed to ease up with Hundley firing a pass over him, barreling into the quarterback. Skov's hit wasn't dirty but he did lower his shoulder to brace for the collision, making it an easy call for a Pac-12 officiating crew known for calling games tightly. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
10/21/13 - Skov, Mauro bully Bruins in Stanford's win...In a game billed as a showdown between exciting redshirt sophomore quarterbacks Brett Hundley and Kevin Hogan, defenses instead stole the spotlight in a Pac-12 battle pitting No. 9 UCLA against No. 13 Stanford. Cardinal inside linebacker Shayne Skov and defensive lineman Josh Mauro personified the physicality of the game with their intense, technically sound play in the Cardinal's 24-10 win. Each has played well this season, steadily rising up draft boards.
Skov, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 4 inside linebacker, has demonstrated more explosiveness in his second season removed from a torn ACL. The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder exploded through gaps in UCLA's offensive line for several emphatic collisions with Bruins backs, resulting in multiple tackles for loss on the day. The physicality was there for Skov a season ago. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
