Morning links: Harvey Langi turning NFL scouts’ heads; Jazz big three ranked

As a portion of his pro day round-up on UPI, Rob Rang of NFL Draft Scout looked at BYU’s Harvey Langi.

Rang wrote, “The 6-foot-2, 251-pound Langi is one of the more intriguing sleepers of this year’s crop of linebackers.”

After looking at Langi’s transition from running back to linebacker to defensive line and looking at his on-field production, Rang then turned his attention to the combine numbers, saying, “he showed an impressive combination of agility (4.32 seconds in the short shuttle) and bench press (23 reps) but opted not to run the 40-yard dash, at least until Friday when he was clocked in the low 4.6s and really turned heads with his positional workout.”

Rang then mentioned that Langi’s stock is “much higher” than most realize before listing off some of the teams looking at the BYU linebacker, saying, “Six teams that have expressed significant interest since Langi’s workout, including the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers, many of which have significant needs at inside linebacker.”
