Default Drue Tranquill... The next Harrison Smith?

He looks pretty good, and getting better later in his career... just like Harrison Smith. I enjoyed how he was trying to force the fumble. He was karate chopping those mf'ers.

Attacking the ball with solid fundamental tackling is a thing of beauty

I'm a Viking fan so I see a lot of Harrison and they actually play him like Drue. They blitz him a lot maybe 5-10 times a game, he had two sacks and a one handed pick last week.

Drue has been unreal this year and he's great at rover. He's underrated as an athlete but he's one of the most fundamentally sound players I've seen. A big, smart, and fast football player who loves contact.

Many should be eating crow on him saying a 3 star with a Purdue offer was no good, we'll be proved us wrong.

Hayseed!!!!

One of my all-time favorites from the secondary...right next to Walton, Lyght and Zibby!!

Tranquill has been awesome this year.

I'm sure there are more than a few NFL teams who are envisioning him in their defensive backfield. For us, he is so freaking important for being that guy everyone can feed off of....a true warrior mentality out there.

He might get a gig as a LB but there is no chance he is playing in anybodies secondary in the NFL.

The NFL likes these guys now that fly around, force fumbles and can cover TEs. He might just be in luck for once which he deserves after a terrible run of injuries.

I think he probably goes more the route on Onwualu, where he gets drafted by a team that wants an athletic OLB to rush the passer and drop into space. He seems to thrive closer to the LOS and might get more looks from the NFL at OLB and special teams vs playing back in the secondary.

I was very wrong about this kid. He was out of position his entire career, but playing this Rover position is perfect for him. Not sure he gets into the NFL as a S, but he'll definitely land somewhere.
