Morning links: BYU’s Harvey Langi moving up draft boards; Frank Jackson a projected first-round pick

While talking about the draft buzz surrounding the Miami Dolphins and the Cincinnati Bengals, Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst had a great deal to share about BYU linebacker Harvey Langi.

Pauline wrote, “the name I continue to hear rising up boards is Harvey Langi of BYU.

“Langi’s aggressive style of play and his junior tape — when he lined up at inside linebacker for the Cougars — as well as his combine and pro day workouts have all factored into the rise. The poor depth at the inside linebacker position has also given a boost to Langi’s stock.”
