2013 Community Projections: LB Bryce Hager

New, 16 comments

The one I had planned to go up today didn't work out for various reasons, so we're moving on to LB Bryce Hager, the core of Baylor's defense at middle linebacker.

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

Despite being demoted from a starting spot for a quarter of a season, Baylor junior LB Bryce Hager led the league in tackles in 2012. He looks ready to do it again.

That's an impressive statline, particularly the 9.5 tackles for loss from the LB spot. He improved tremendously as the year went on in blitzing, as well, probably as a result of disguising his blitzes better and not tipping off the offense.

For Hager, give me...

TACKLES / TACKLES FOR LOSS / SACKS / TURNOVERS CAUSED

On that last one, include interceptions and fumbles caused, but not fumbles recovered. I thought about including passes defensed, since that's a category where he registered a statistic last season, but it's not critical. We'll stick to the four up there.
