In 2010, Kerrigan was named:

  • 2010 First Team AP All-American
  • 2010 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year
  • 2010 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year
  • First team All-Big Ten
  • Academic All-Big Ten
  • Runner up for the Ted Hendricks Award (nation’s outstanding defensive end)
  • Semifinalist for Chuck Bednarik Award and Ronnie Lott Impact Trophy

In 2010, Kerrigan had 70 total tackles and was:

  • 3rd in the FBS in sacks (12.5) having at least one sack in 9 of 12 games
  • 1st in the FBS in tackles for loss (TFL = 26) having at least one TFL in 11 of 12 games
  • 2nd in the FBS in forced fumbles (5)

And, here are his NFL Combine Numbers:

  • Size — 6′ 4″ and 267 lbs
  • Arms & Hands – 33 3/8″ & 9.5″
  • 40 yard dash = 4.71 sec … 3 cone drill = 7.18 sec
  • Vertical Leap = 33.5″ … Broad Jump = 122″
  • Bench Press = 31 reps

Can you imagine this guy opposite of Cameron Wake?

So, do you think Jeff Ireland may select Ryan Kerrigan at the 15th pick?  I woke up this morning with my gut telling me that Ryan Kerrigan will be the 15th pick in the draft.  Either the Dolphins will select him.  Or, they will trade down and the Falcons will select him — with the Dolphins getting a second and a fourth rounder. 

By the way, my mock draft picks will still hold in order with Moffitt being picked in the middle of the fourth and Roy Helu being picked in the later half of the fourth.

Enjoy the draft!  And, please don’t forget to join PhinPhanatic for live draft chat on Thursday and Friday nights!

    Regardless of how good the player is, he doesn’t help the offense score points. The defense is not the problem, its the offense. OLBs are available late in the draft. Ireland will be crucified if the 1st round pick isn’t offense.

      By the way, I agree. I just have a strange feeling that they are in nowheresville with the 15th pick. And, I fear they may just do something stupid. That is why I brought Kerrigan up!
